Jeddah Tower (Arabic: ??? ????), previously called Kingdom Tower (??? ???????), is a stalled construction project of a skyscraper on the north of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. It is supposed to be the world's first 1 km (3,281 feet ) high building, and the centrepiece and first phase of a development and tourist attraction called Jeddah Economic City.There was steady progress but in January 2018 building owner JEC halted structural concrete work together with the tower about one-third completed because of labour issues with a builder after the 2017--19 Saudi Arabian purge.
The United States Capitol, often called The Capitol or the Capitol Building, is the meeting place of the United States Congress and the seat of the legislative branch of the U.S. federal government. It is located on Capitol Hill at the eastern end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Though no longer at the geographic center of the federal district, the Capitol forms the origin point for the district's street-numbering system and the district's four quadrants. The original building was completed in 1800. It was partly destroyed in the 1814 burning of Washington, then was fully restored within five years. The building was later enlarged, with the addition of a massive dome, and extended wings with expanded chambers for the bicameral legislature, the House of Representatives in the south wing and the Senate in the north wing. Like the principal buildings of the executive and judicial branches, the Capitol is built in the neoclassic style and has a white exterior. Both its east and west elevations are formally referred to as fronts, though only the east front was intended for the reception of visitors and dignitaries.Source: Wikipedia
