Helipad vs outdoor terrace: The 1000 M Jeddah Tower in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
Historically, wealthy developers have constructed skyscrapers as monuments of power. In Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, they will do it in the form of the Jeddah Tower, which will be at least one kilometer high.
The tower will have an observation deck at least 30 meters in diameter. The observation deck will be the highest in the world. The tower will also have a luxury hotel and serviced apartments.
The tower will also have 59 elevators and 12 escalators. The elevators will be high speed, at least 10 meters per second.
In addition to the observation deck, the tower will also have an outdoor terrace. The helipad originally plan for the tower is change to the terrace, which consider more practical.
Originally, the Jeddah Tower was designed as a helipad, but the location was considered too dangerous. The pilots found the structure was unsuitable for landing. In addition, the wind at high altitude was too strong for a helicopter to land. The design was then changed to the terrace, which will be the world’s highest terrace when it is completed.
