this project has as much chance of being built as
the americans building a 250 mile tower to access the
international space station by elevator!

Wouldn't that melt the foundation though? The reason this building may not be built soon is that they haven't found out how to build a foundation that could stand the heat from the earth's core.

In all seriousness, such a project is not out of reach within the next 10 years and maybe sooner. Only time will tell. There has to be some serious progress to want to build so high to get Jeddah on the international map as the U.A.E. did with BD.

If they front the ca$h then they will build it. Oil money can easily pay for this since such a project in itself is not economically viable.

I hope they build it as a monument to engineering achievment. If they wanted and achieved to land on the moon, they can build up a mile.

Go Jeddah!

You can't be serious. No foundation will need to go that deep, not even for a 10 mile high tower
