Infographic: the world’s most expensive buildings

We often hear about the world’s tallest buildings but surely we should be more focused on what the buildings actually cost. Well thanks to Cantrell & Crowley we now have the answers!

The Abraj Al-Bait Towers stands on its own when it comes to cost and it is almost double the cost of the second most expensive building in the list. The $15 billion spent on the towers as part of the King Abdulaziz Endowment project is amazing. There is clearly no shortage of money in the Saudi Arabian government.

There must be a lot of money to be made in casinos as two famous Las Vegas casinos feature on the list, as well as other casinos around the world that are owned by Las Vegas Sands.

The design of the new One World Trade Center makes the list with $3.8 billion spent on building the tower. Enjoy the infographic!
