This project aligns with the Saudi Vision 2030 goal of creating a sustainable environment that enhances quality of life through a real sports renaissance. Besides, the tower will house over 30 sports facilities including the world’s tallest indoor climbing wall at 98 metres, which will offer opportunities for climbers of all skill levels, from beginners to professionals to be a part of the world’s fastest-growing sport and promote grassroots sports participation in the Kingdom.

The tower will feature the world’s highest running track, fully digitised and with a 250-metre circuit. The project also includes 4.4 million square metres of greenery and open spaces, 50 sports facilities, unique destinations, and investment zones spanning over 3 million square metres.

The tower will stand out with its distinctive architectural design inspired by the Salmani architectural principles, combining originality and modernity, and by offering world-class sports facilities, the tower aims to enhance the quality of life in the city and promote a sports culture among all members of society.
