The Public Investment Fund (PIF) Tower is a 385 m (1,263 ft) skyscraper in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.[3] Construction started in 2010 and was topped-out in 2014. The building was finally completed in 2021, making it the tallest building in Riyadh, surpassing Burj Rafal, and the second-tallest in Saudi Arabia. Designed by HOK and Omrania, the 76-story PIF Tower is one of the most high-tech skyscrapers in the world and the centerpiece of the King Abdullah Financial District.[4]

The tower is aiming for LEED Gold certification and will feature an observation deck, two-story atrium as well as double-height sky lobbies, an innovative Twin elevator system with two cabs traveling in a single shaft, and amenities including a fitness center, pool, and cafeteria.[5][6]
