Located in a strategic point in the city of Riyadh, close to the business district and the city center, this large hotel complex of 610 meters, is a skyscraper that includes the spa and health services, sky bar-restaurant, executive club, business center, apartments and conference center, in fact includes within its program three interstitial floors with gardens that work as windbreaks at strategic points, thanks to the same aerodynamic shape. Within the conceptual design, there are mechanisms of renewable energy located in the façade and following a modular panel system, designed parametrically. Each panel incorporates turbines that geometrically varies the diameter of the opening in order to enhance the natural ventilation cooling system, that works parallel to the rainwater collection. The podium structure houses the hotel amenities and conference facilities and links the building to its surroundings at the pedestrian level. The podium incorporates a multipurpose hall, restaurants and extensive outdoor gardens.

It's true, I'm talking about the recent ones that were proposed after the KAFD. I'm not trying to be anti-anything here, on the contrary, I really wished for that Riyadh Tower proposal (the first with that name, the crystal shaped one) to be built, I loved that design. Unfortunately, since the KAFD supertalls, nothing tall seems to make it past the proposal stage.

Due to the economic crisis that is hitting all nations with economy majorly based on oil I doubt anything will be built anytime soon. Maybe when the situation gets better this will go through.

Design wise I think it looks nice but would be better without the orange sections, If they build it fully glass I believe it will look wayy better.

It's really not. Might look all nice and shiny is photos but in the flesh it's underwhelming (especially during the day when it's not lit up and you can see it for what it is) as everything around the few decent buildings there is awful. In 10/15 years it might be world class. Now, it's not any better than other cities in the region let alone on a world scale. Doha, Abu Dhabi and Dubai are waaaay head

Great..!!

Al Mamlakah was the highest ever, now is just part of the skyline. This will be disappointing for Walid Bin Talal..

At 600m, would this then be one of the tallest, if not the tallest hotel in the world?
