Jeddah has a good economy (without Oil) and a lot of foreigners visitors .

so they have to care of this city and it will be more beautiful.

The world's first hypertall, I wonder if in ten years hypertalls will be as common as supertalls are today.
After this the only place left to hit will be the 'mile high' tower, I think that might be a bit longer away than ten years tho

We all wonder for that question. I hope I'll still be around to even see the first gigatall being built.

I have a previous post of me about this here:

So this will be the first hypertall. I almost feel like Burj Khalifa should be considered a hypertall.
