The Middle East hosts so many clever and extremely pricey architecture in hopes of being the best in the world and thus the Saudis do it again with their version of the Ben Ben in Greenwich. This building will be 2,000 feet high, four-sided, and feature 98 million mosaic pieces inscribing "God is the Greatest." It will also run on Arabia Standard Time.

The price? Only $800 million. So as the Saudis rival Greenwich, this makes everyone wonder what else will be mimicked by these ultra-rich bad boys.
