Tallest tower in the world due in 2019

The Chairman of Kingdom Holding Company (KHC) said the first stage of the 1km-high Jeddah Tower, set to be the world’s tallest building, is due by 2019 after solving the financial issues with contractor Saudi Binladin Group (SBG), according to media reports.

Speaking to the press on Thursday night at the project’s construction site on the 28th floor of Jeddah Tower, Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, chairman of Kingdom Holding Company, confirmed that the Jeddah Tower is going to be the tallest in the world despite the latest announcement of Dubai in building the tallest tower in the world.

“It is a solid concrete building unlike the one announced in Dubai which is considered as a skeleton. This is why our tower will be the tallest in the world,” he said.

He also said the final height of the building would not be revealed even to project partners until six months before its completion, when the size of the spire at the top will also be revealed.
