The above image is what the Burj Khalifa would look like if it was built in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The tallest building in the world, which reaches 828M began construction in 2004 and finished in 2010. It was designed by the famous architect Adrian Smith. It is tough to put into perspective how large this building is. Winnipeg's tallest building, which was recently completed is the Artis Reit Residential Tower at 300 Main Street. The tower extends 142M. Burj Khalifa is over 5x the height of Winnipeg's tallest building.
The Jeddah Tower in Saudi Arabia is set to become the new tallest building once it is completed. After a five-year hiatus, construction has continued on the skyscraper, also designed by Adrian Smith. This tower is expected to reach an unbelievable 1000M, 172M higher than the Burj Khalifa! Here is a rendering of the new Jeddah Tower:
