We have in 4th place the Abraj Al Bait
towers in Makkah at 595m.
Then we have the Burj Khalifa
in Dubai standing at 828m.
In second place we have the developing Madinat al-Hareer
in Kuwait. To stand at 1001m.
In first place, we have the proposed mile-high tower
in Jeddah. To be 1600m tall. Almost double the size of Burj Khalifa
These are the big towers that I know of in the middle east atm. There's probably more being planned.
Isn't all this very stark
and completely proves the hadiths which mention how bedouin arabs would compete with each other in constructing tall buildings?
Especially that it seems mostly only those in the middle east who are showing concern about building massive skyscrapers nowadays. Almost as though these countries really are competing
with each other.
