Tallest tower plan in Saudi

Plans have been hatched for what is set to become the tallest building in Saudi Arabia.

Plans have been hatched for what is set to become the tallest building in Saudi Arabia. Designs for the sail-shaped tower have been drawn up by architects at Atkins.

Although its height is yet to be disclosed, Fahmy Roauf, engineering department manager at Al Rajhi Bank’s real estate investment unit confirmed that it would be “the tallest tower yet in Saudi Arabia” and will be built in Riyadh.

“The tower is being built on behalf of the Al Rajhi family and will be used for commercial purposes,” he said.

Plans have also been approved for the construction of a new tower to accommodate the Al Rajhi Bank’s headquarters in Riyadh, designs for which have been drawn by Skidmore Owings & Merrill, the architects behind the Burj Dubai.

The kingdom’s current tallest building is the 302m Kingdom Centre in Riyadh.
