If the plan for a brand-new tower known as “The Bride” is completed as proposed by AMBS Architects, it will be the new tallest building in the world.
Set to rise in Iraq’s oil-rich Basra Province, the complex is actually made up of four conjoined towers, totaling 604 stories and 16.6 million square feet.
They combine to create what the architects are calling the world’s first “vertical city.”
A 616-foot antennae sits on the tallest of the towers, which would soar 3,780 feet into the sky.
This makes it taller that both the current tallest building, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, which rises 2,723 feet, and the future tallest building, Saudi Arabia’s Kingdom Tower, which will be 3,307 feet tall when completed.
