Egypt’s Minister of Housing Moustafa Madbouly has revealed plans to build the nation’s tallest tower in Cairo. The pyramid-like Zayed Crystal Spark tower will top out at 200-meters (656-feet) and occupy a 798,000-square-meter parcel in the city’s Sheikh Zayed district - a short distance from the historic pyramids of Giza.

Little is known regarding the tower, however details are expected to be released at an upcoming economic summit in March. The mixed-use tower will house office, commercial and entertainment programs.
