Kuwait Plans to Build World's Tallest Tower 'Burj Mubarak'

Kuwait has announced its plans to be home to the world's tallest tower, called the Burj Mubarak, which is set to surpass Dubai's Burj Khalifa.

"It would be the tallest building in Kuwait, and it is safe to say that its planned height surpasses that of the world's current tallest building – Burj Khalifa in Dubai (828 meters). However, it is not the world's tallest under-construction building at this moment," according to a Business Insider report. 

The 1,001-meter tall tower will be constructed at the heart of Madinat Al Hareer or Silk City, Kuwait's ongoing megaproject which is expected to be completed this year.

The Burj Mubarak, however, is estimated to take about 25 years to be completed.

The height of the Burj Mubarak skyscraper is reportedly a deliberate homage to the folk tales of 1001 Arabian Nights. 

The tower will consist of 234 floors, with a capacity to house up to 7,000 people.

The new landmark is expected to include residential, commercial, and entertainment facilities, as well as a large central park. All will be spanned over an area of 250 square kilometers.
