Almost 385 m (1263 ft) high, the Iconic Tower in Egypt is the tallest structure on the African continent. Designed as part of Egypt’s New Administrative Capital, the landmark tower is a centerpiece in a project proposed to fully relocate the North African nation’s capital (and some five million people) to a desert location 35 km (516 miles) east of Cairo.
