Top skyscrapers being built in the MENA region

DubaiSkyscraperView
From the tallest building on the African continent to a new skyscraper set to take the Burj Khalifa’s title as the ‘world’s tallest building’, here are some of the most impressive builds currently under way in the region

ICONIC TOWER, NEW ADMINISTRATIVE CAPITAL, EGYPT

Set to be the tallest building in Africa when it’s completed in 2022, this 385-metre-high megastructure is situated in Egypt’s new government hub - the New Administrative Capital.

DUBAI CREEK TOWER, DUBAI CREEK HARBOUR, UAE

At a startup cost of USD 1 million, this skyscraper is set to take the top spot as the world’s tallest building once completed. Initially due to be finished in 2022, in December last year it was announced that construction would be paused due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

JEDDAH TOWER, JEDDAH, SAUDI ARABIA

Competing for the title of world’s tallest building is Saudi Arabia’s Jeddah Tower. Once completed this megastructure is expected to be a minimum of 1 kilometre in height. Construction halted in 2018, JEC - the company which owns the tower - has yet to give a new date for completion.

PALM TOWER, PALM JUMEIRAH, UAE

Connected to Palm Jumeirah’s Nakheel Mall, this new tower will be a mix of residential accommodation and luxury hotel property when it opens later this year. At the top of the 240-metre-high build will be an observation deck offering panoramic views of the Dubai skyline and the Arabian Gulf.
