At the start of the 21st century, the 452-meter high Petronas Tower held the title of “The World’s Tallest”. As the decade ended, the Burj Khalifa took ownership of the title standing “over half a mile” high at 828-meters. Now, construction set to begin this month for Jeddah’s 1,000+ meter Kingdom Tower, doubling the height of “The World’s Tallest” in only two decades. It seems that “600m seems to be the new 300m”.
