Jeddah Tower Project

  • Postponed
  • Saudi Arabia
  • Leisure, Building

This project will be located in Obhur, just outside of the port city Jeddah and cover an area of 5.3 million square meters. Construction of one-kilometre-high Jeddah Tower comprising (252) floors, a 97,000 square metre retail mall and underground garages for more than 4,700 cars. It will comprise (439) apartments, (200) hotel rooms, (59) elevators and (2,205) parking spaces. When complete, the skyscraper in Jeddah will rise at least 1,000 metres (3,281 feet), overtaking the 828-metre-tall (2,716 feet) Burj Khalifa in Dubai, which is currently the tallest building in the world. The building will have 12 million cubic feet of space for offices, a hotel and residential units. Its floor area will be a staggering 38 million square feet. The height will take an elevator 12 minutes to get to the top. The multivariate form of the tower is rationalized by a “Y”-shaped plan and a continuously smooth taper, which will significantly reduce structural loads by obviating the need for the complicated outrigger transfers and belt trusses required in a setback approach. Furthermore, each wing of the tower will terminate at different heights, allowing them to taper at different rates and establish a distinct three-part spire. The complex will contain (59) elevators, including five double-deck elevators. An 8.9-square-mile city will also be built around this tower, which can accommodate 80,000 people and an additional one million visitors.
