The Saudi Arabian government has revealed designs for a cube-shaped skyscraper to be built as part of its Murabba downtown plan in Riyadh.

Named Mukaab, the structure will be 400 metres high and 400 metres long, making it both a supertall skyscraper and the tallest building in the city.

The 19-square-kilometre Murabba development has been described as “the new face of Riyadh” and is being planned as a new downtown area for the Saudi capital city.
