New-age Lord of the Rings Sauron tower is set for construction

Africa is about to get a new tallest building, one that looks quite like Sauron's tower from Lord of the Rings

Named the Al Noor Tower, this Sauron tower look-alike is to be constructed in Africa and will be identical to one already placed in Casablanca, Morocco.




Planned be the tallest building in Africa, this 1771-foot project is taken on board by Sheikh Tarek M. bin Laden and designed by French architects Valode et Pistre. Although not officially listed as a Sauron-replica and obviously missing the massive firery eye at its peak, this tower sure does look similar.


Soil testing is said to begin in 2015 before construction, so don't expect it any time too soon. However, if you start seeing short people with hairy feet walking around the African streets, you know why.
