Designed by the same person who is designing Arena Central in Birmingham . I expect something good for AC then. This tower looks awesome though.

Well if this happens, Burj Dubai isn't going to hold the title for very long.

That's the reason why they put Al Burj as a reserve. To make sure that Dubai will get the tallest whoever wants to beat them. It's a good thing Middle East is starting to have confidence to follow the Dubai Way. I remember when business or trading was used to be called "legal smuggling". Now, everyone is following them. It seems like Saudi Arabia is very quiet. I will not be surprise if Saudi Arabia will join soon.

Kuwait To Build World's Tallest Tower At 1,001 Meters

Quote:
Kuwait City, Kuwait (AHN) - Kuwait is building the world's tallest tower at 1,001 meters in Madinat al Hareer, also known as the City of Silk. When completed, the Burj Mubarak al-Kabir will beat a residential tower undergoing construction in Dubai estimated to rise between 700 to 800 meters.

The Kuwait Municipal Council approved Wednesday the development plans of Madinat Al Hareer, a multi-purpose economic, commercial and residential development in Subiyah. It is owned by Madinat Al Hareer Corporation, a government firm.

Covering 250 square kilometers, it will include the world tallest structure, a 2-sq. km. natural desert reservation, duty free area, a new airport, tourist-oriented establishments and business centers. It is estimated to cost $86.1 billion (25 billion dinar).

The project aims to reduce Kuwait's dependence on revenues from oil. Half of Kuwait's gross domestic product, valued at $60.72 billion in 2006, came from petroleum. The country holds 10 percent of the world's oil reserves.

Dubai's standing tallest structure is Burj Dubai at 422.5 meters with 120 storeys. It is one of five completed building in the world with more than 100 floors. Next to Burj Dubai are New York's Empire State building measuring 381 meters and Chicago's John Hancock Centre with 344 meters.
