An idea that was proposed in 2011 will soon become a reality, as work on the Kingdom Tower is set to start on April 27 in Jeddah

Once completed, the colossal Kingdom Tower will be the tallest man made structure on earth, standing at a height of a little more than a kilometre, and is set for completion in 2018.

According to a source, architects expect the $1.23 billion dollar project to take 63 months to complete, and will be the first phase of the Kingdom City development that will border the Red Sea on the north side of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia.  

The Kingdom Tower will also reign over China's 838-metre tall Changsha Sky City, which will beat Dubai's Burj Khalifa as the world's tallest building - when it's completed later this year.
