Pair of spectacular skyscrapers to rise like a mirage in the Saudi desert

•, By Adam Williams

Bringing to mind some of the blue-sky designs of the eVolo Skyscraper Competition, or perhaps something by Margot Krasojevi?, Epicon will be located on the Gulf of Aqaba, which is situated at the northern tip of the Red Sea.

The smaller of the two skyscrapers will rise to a height of 225 m (roughly 740 ft), while its taller neighbor will reach 275 m (900 ft). Inside, they will host luxury hotel space, with a swimming pool terrace and other amenities you'd expect, such as a gym, library, workspaces, and lounges.

Just a short distance from the two skyscrapers will be a smaller third tower (its expected height has not yet been revealed), which will be a beach resort and host more hotel space and amenities. It will also incorporate significant greenery and create multiple terrace areas and courtyards. Additionally, there will be 45 residential beach villas designed to blend into the desert landscape scattered around the site too.
