Al-Waleed bin Talal's aspirations

Al-Waleed bin Talal plans to build the world's tallest building, more than a kilometre high, as part of a $26.7 billion project in the Saudi Arabian city of Jeddah. The project, called Kingdom City, will span 23 million square metres and will include luxury homes, hotels and offices. The world's tallest man-made structure is currently the Burj Dubai skyscraper in Dubai which is still under construction but already stands at more than 680 metres in height.
