Skyhigh at Mecca

Page 1 of 1

In about a year, Mecca will boast of the second tallest building in the world. The tower, overlooking the Kaaba, will be part of a cluster of seven in the Abraj al-Bait complex and will set new records for the most floor space in a single structure and the world’s largest clock. The building will have a five-star hotel, shopping malls and helipads. And, of course, some of the world’s highest apartment prices.
