Kuwait building the World Tallest Tower 1 km to the edge of the sky

Kuwait just announced its plans to build the Burj Mubarak Al-Kabir to attain a height of 1,001 meters (3,284 ft). The Burj Dubai is supposed to top out at over 800 meters but they are in mid-construction; and maybe they will now figure out how to top up another few hundred meters to stay ahead as the world tallest. These Gulf States are getting crazy over their mega-projects each wanting to be ahead.

Madinat Al-Hareer is an $86 billion dollar project that will include not only the skyscraper but an airport and an expansive desert preserve. Check out the video clip below.

Wonder what monster projects will we hear next from the land of Black Gold.....

It can't be done next year simply because they haven't even started it yet. Such projects don't only require money,they require great minds,Kuwait has the money..
