There’s a 100 metre tall Starkiller Base in Abu Dhabi

That's no office block...


Ever think about the guys who work in the Death Star, or its even more massive successor the Starkiller base? Yes there are Stormtroopers and pilots and dark Jedi, but who fixes Kylo Ren’s email when it goes down?


Ask the people who work in this Abu Dhabi skyscraper.


Of course, this is all some PR puff for Abu Dhabi, and a reminder that its deserts played Jakku in The Force Awakens. Nevertheless, you can’t doubt the effort. It’s 100 metres tall and has a surface area of 17,000 metres squared. That’s a little smaller than the real planet-sized version, but pretty impressive nonetheless.
