Towering more than 300 metres above the city of Riyadh, Kingdom Centre is one of Saudi Arabia’s tallest buildings. The complex is a celebration of luxury and is considered a city landmark. It houses a high-end shopping mall featuring a host of designer boutiques and specialty stores, as well as corporate offices and coveted residential apartments.
The luxurious Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh is located within Kingdom Centre, bringing together luxury accommodation, fine dining and world-class entertainment. For a breathtaking view over the city, taking the elevator to the Sky Bridge is a must. It spans for 65 metres and is one of Saudi Arabia’s most visited tourist attractions.
Thanks to its central location, accessing Kingdom Centre is easy. It’s a short 15-minute drive from Masmak Fortress and the National Museum of Saudi Arabia. From King Khalid International Airport, Kingdom Centre is a 25-minute drive south. Tickets to the Sky Bridge can be purchased on-site, with two separate elevators whisking passengers to the top of the building.
A modern marvel, Kingdom Centre is one of the world’s tallest buildings featuring an inverted parabolic arch. It was designed by legendary Armenian architect Richard Tenguerian and appears to defy gravity. It is on par with Shanghai’s impressive World Financial Centre, and Taiwan’s gleaming Tuntex Sky Tower.
