World One will probably never be the tallest residential tower, the Pentominium will be completed before it.

hence the title, next tallest. you don't see Elite Residence discussed much here, which might sneak into second place behind 23 Marina for a couple of weeks.

you'll find them discussed in other threads, don't worry.

Saudi to build world's tallest tower.

Riyadh - The investment firm headed by Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal says it has signed a $1.2bn deal with the Saudi Binladen Group to build the world's tallest tower.

Kingdom Holding Co said on Tuesday the Kingdom Tower, to be built in the Red Sea city of Jiddah, is part of the first phase of Kingdom City.

The sprawling mega project was announced in 2008 and is slated to cover a 8.6kmē.

Kingdom Tower is to be over 1 000m tall. It will include a hotel, serviced apartments, luxury condominiums and offices, occupying roughly 1.6 million mē.

The deal was signed between Jeddah Economic Co, a KHC affiliate, and the Binladen Group, a construction giant that will also take a 16.6% stake in JEC.

Kingdom Tower is a mixed-used project, but this thread is only about residential buildings. And until any opening ceremony at that proposed overall world's tallest, there'll be several next tallest resi towers for sure...

Looks like the tallest residential record holder will be located in Dubai Marina for the next few years with candidated from other cities as follow-ups of The Pentominium.

Do we know it's mixed use? I though the whole thing was leased to Emirates for cabin crew accommodation?

With Pentominium on hold it presents an opportunity for World One(442m) or 440 Park Ave(~430m) to take the title.

world one has a long way to go before surpassing Pentominuim
i think it would be incredible if it does hold the worlds tallest title for a short time but i cant see it
current site status>


Pentominium is 30floors, but yes on hold. i dont think it will be on hold for long.

World one will take more than one year to reach 30floor above GL.
