It's amazing how many posts are actually asking this. Every other post in the entire thread is either asking whether this will be built, or explaining that it won't. Don't people read the thread (or even its title) at all before posting in it?

It would be very cool to build such a structure. A leap forward in engineering and construction.

Never was, never will be. The "Vision" tag might as well say "pipe dream", since it usually signals a proposal from an architectural firm created for the sake of promotion, with no regards for the feasibility of the project.

Today I saw this on instagram. Can you spot that tall building in the background? It kinda looks like the Dubai City Tower. Maybe a smaller version. I don't know ??? Can anyone guess which tower it might be?

Or is it "just" the Solar Tower? hmm http://www.businesswire.com/news/hom...0916005013/de/

No, that's the Solar Innovation Center (I think that was the name) next to the solar power plant, it's some kind of public building near the solar park that people can go into and do stuff. The actual solar tower will likely look very industrial like they always do.

You got kidding at me?!? 400 floors? That's too much! How they do that? I never ever see anything about 400 floors before.
