THE RISE OF A SUPERTALL
Soaring to a height of more than one kilometer, Jeddah Tower will be the tallest building in the world when completed in 2019.
RISING TO THE CHALLENGE
With its three cascading towers crowned by a connecting Sands Skypark, the multi-use resort defines the city’s skyline and offers an extraordinary experience for leisure and business travelers from all over the world.
FAST LANE FOR VERTICAL COMMUTERS
The 75-story condominium tower, One Bloor East, in downtown Toronto rises from one of the best-knows intersections in Canada. Long before its completion, the project has become the city’s most sough-after residential address.
The Makkah Clock Royal Tower Hotel can only be described in superlatives: the tallest hotel, the largest indoor space (1.6 million square meters for the total project), and on the list of tallest buildings, it currently holds second place.
GATEWAY TO THE NEW MILAN
A high-rise hub worthy of Milan’s reputation for style has sprung up in a formerly neglected space in the heart of the city. It is arguably the most ambitious urban renewal project Italy has ever seen.
A SKYLINE REDEFINED
Piercing the sky like a shard of glass, The Shard is putting new punctuation to an already famous cityscape. Standing at 310 meters, this landmark building is the tallest in Western Europe.
Designed for Asian markets
The official launch of Genting Dream in November 2016 symbolizes the global cruise market’s shift to Asia and the launch of the continent’s first luxury cruise line – Dream Cruises

122 Leadenhall is a building of world firsts, boasting the world’s largest and fastest suite of panoramic elevators. But the real stunner is the mold-breaking design – nothing comparable has ever been attempted before.
LE ROYAL GOES GREEN
Amman – capital of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan – is a city steeped in history. When construction on the Le Royal hotel was completed in 2002, it was ultra-modern, yet its tower-like structure sits comfortably in a metropolis whose history stretches back more than 3,000 years.
BUILT FOR TOMORROW
Metrotown Properties – a dazzling commercial development in Vancouver – is reinventing Canada’s urban experience. Metrotower III, a 29-floor LEED®-certified Platinum “AAA” Class office building, is at the heart of it all.
STEEL NEST OF THE PHOENIX
As awe-inspiring as the mythical bird after which it is named, Beijing’s Phoenix Media Center lifts China into an unprecedented era in steel innovation.
RECORD-SETTING DESIGN IN DUBAI
Dubai never ceases to amaze. The prestigious Princess Tower, the tallest residential building in the world to date, is a world-class example of modern building design and construction.
LIVING IN HARMONY
Soaring above some of Bangkok’s most luxurious real estate, the two towers that make up The River bring contemporary design to inner city living.
