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.
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.
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.
TRUE TO CLUB COLORS
Shining like an emerald against the night sky, Budapest’s newest soccer stadium has a strong Go Green theme, which matches the club colors of its home team, Ferencvárosi Torna Club.
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.
THE LEGEND LIVES ON IN MANHATTAN
When Madison Square Garden calls itself “The World’s Most Famous Arena”, few disagree. It has a rich history of hosting nearly every major name in music, all-star athletes, national political conventions, and numerous world-famous shows and events.
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.
