If they want to build something this big, they should make it taller than 833m. Since a lot of effort has been spent already, why not go for taller?

You probably read the wrong thread, try this thread

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1206241

This is where most of the local Cambodian contribute. Those outside of Cambodia are probably not so optimistic about it.

I don't think anything is concrete yet, they are inviting for designs, etc, someone odd to come up with something different, possibly taller, possibly multiple tower, etc.

But China wants to keep its pride, the "tallest tower in the world" is probably under discussion as well.

Or a 800+ might be too expensive, how about tallest twin tower?
Or tallest skybridge connecting the twin tower?

Or it see no point in challenging Dubai, Dubai is probably going to build the 2.4km tower.

If you know how to read, or took the couple of seconds to read the first post, you would know that the building shown is JUST A CONCEPT. Simply to show how big a building would need to be in order to have that much square footage.

I want Bionic Tower built, too, but I also want to have a building that's 666m tall. So hopefully they built both, along with Sky City 1000.

How can you tell? It doesn't even have a design yet. Looked in your crystal ball?

even if it's just a concept, and will never be built, why did they choose THAT design

This monstrosity looks like a poor copy of Sears (or whatever that tower is called now).

First of all, this is just a concept, so don't be too emotional about this.
Also, I think 666m is great. Since it's built in China, there is no need to change the height to suite foreign taste, just like there is no need to avoid 444 in nyc or london to suite chinese taste.

You people must be retarded or illiterate. The tower shown is only a CONCEPT to show how big the project would be if built. Goddamn it, I am so sick of seeing the SAME post ragging on a design that was probably thrown together in 5 minutes to show the scale of the building.

READ THE FIRST POST PEOPLE.

We have a lot of forumers whose only purpose is padding out the threads with random comments. Some may have 10,000+ posts. They're like the NPC of the RPG games. Just don't pay attention to them.

what it a forum for? The people on this forum are not intelligent people that know everything cause if they were, then why are they on this forum? Like seriously the purpose of a forum is to have discussions not just a list of facts about a building or pictures, most of the people come to this forum for pics and facts though. We can talk about others peoples posts but when we do that we are usually just being hypocrites, we all do it, i hate it when people post:
Quote:
that comment was dumb
because that comment was also dumb
Whatever though because this sort of thing will never stop, no matter how many times we try to stop these people. (which are everyone on the forums, including myself) there may be some exceptions, even this post is anoying
