Valencia, Spain – An ambitious new building project that would dwarf the tallest skyscraper on Earth is being eyed by some of the world’s most influential architects and investors.
The Spanish city of Valencia has announced plans for a building that will dwarf the Burj Khalifa in Dubai and the Burson-Marsteller Building in London.
A team of Spanish architects, including architects from the country’s prestigious Intertubes Design, are on track to start work on the project by the end of this year.
Dubai’s Burj al-Arab is now the world highest-profile building, but it sits on a much smaller site than the Valencia skyscraper.
Its 565m-tall tower sits on the ground floor of a luxury apartment block called La Paz, on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea.
Dubais tallest skyscrapers were built in the 1960s, but now the tallest building in the world is the Burji building in Dubai.
Dubya’s Burji is also the tallest in the Gulf, at 1,843 metres.
The Burj-al-Arab project is part of a larger project that is now under way in the city of Antofagasta, Italy.
The project aims to create a world-class city for the urban elite and to make it the first city in the Mediterranean to have a skyscraper that is completely sustainable and built with the highest standards of environmental design.
The architects of the project say the project is a challenge to the world in terms of design, but also because of the scale of the building, which is expected to cost around $2.5 billion.
The Valencia building is expected be completed by 2025 and is expected by 2019 to be the tallest structure in Europe.
The designers say the new building will be a showcase of sustainable architecture.
Its estimated to be able to build 3,000 residential units, a park, and an aquarium, which will be able meet the needs of a growing population, said Josep R. Gonzalez, the project’s project manager.
The building is estimated to cost $2 billion and is being built by architects and construction firms.
The project is the brainchild of the Intertubs Design group of architects and real estate companies.
The new project will be one of the most ambitious in Spain since the construction of the Burjah in Abu Dhabi, which was the tallest commercial building in world history.
