A close-door “design competition” with selected global construction companies is underway.

Saudi Arabia may be weighing in on plans for a 2-kilometer-tall, world’s tallest tower, for its 18-square-kilometer master-planned area in the capital city of Riyadh.

“Contractors that have priced megatall towers in the region say that depending on the final design, a 2km-tall structure could cost about $5bn to construct,” said the report.


The proposed skyscraper will be more than twice as tall as Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, which stands at 828 meters and is currently the tallest building in the world, according to a report published by Middle East business intelligence (MEED) magazine on Wednesday.
