It will be the largest, tallest skyscraper in the known universe and no, I'm not referring to the 2,655-foot-tall Burj Dubai, an unfinished, wanna-be world-record-holder.

I'm talking about the unnamed, mile-high behemoth that Hyder Consulting plans on building. They're not sure (or at least, they're not telling anyone) about where the 5,250-foot-tall structure will be built - only, that it will be somewhere in the Middle East region. That would be more than four times the height of the Empire State Building! Stats for Absolute Tallest Building Trending: Older & Buzzing
