The Bahrain World Trade Center, located in Manama, Bahrain, was completed on April 8, 2008. It was the very first skyscraper to incorporate commercial-scale wind turbines into its building design. The 787-foot, 50-floor tower has inspired others to experiment with wind turbine concepts, although few have actually reached the construction stage.
An aside for you science fiction fans: You might recognize the Bahrain World Trade Center from the 2009 Syfy made-for-TV movie Annihilation Earth.
