Guardian Glass, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of float and high-performance energy-efficient coated glass products, said it has won the contract to supply façade glass for the one-km-high Jeddah Tower, being developed by Saudi Arabia's Kingdom Holding Company.
The Jeddah Tower (previously known as Kingdom Tower), on completion in 2019, is set to become the world's tallest building.
The over $1.2-billion supertall building structure will cover an area of 5.3 million sq m and include 439 apartments, 200 hotel rooms, 59 elevators and 2,205 parking spaces.
It is set to break new world records for tallest building, highest occupied floor, highest architectural top, highest tip and highest sky terrace.
