Dubai’s Burj Khalifa may no longer be the tallest building in the world

The building would have a total of 59 elevators including double deck elevators and 12 escalators, it would also boast the world’s highest observation deck to which high speed elevator’s would travel up to 33 feet per second in both directions (slightly over 35km/hr). Jeddah tower would have 3 sky lobbies where elevator transfers can be made. This implies that no elevator would go from the bottom to highest floor which in some way makes sense considering the incredible height of the building.

The Creator and leader of the project, Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, intends for it to bring significant change in terms of  development and tourism to the city of Jeddah. It is estimated that the construction will take five years and 3 months to complete. Although other experts believe it might take significantly longer considering the duration of the construction of Burj Khalifa.
