At one kilometer (0.6 miles) high, the largest of the two Phoenix Towers planned for Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province in central China, will be the tallest in the world if completed on schedule in 2017/2018.
Phoenix Towers will be an iconic landmark within an ambitious environmental master plan, this is one of four master plans Chetwoods Architects are developing for Hua Yan Group in Wuhan, the capital of central China. Situated on the Yangtze River at the crossroads of nine provinces, the ‘City of 1000 Lakes’, population 10 million, has recently been designated an environmental ‘Super City’ by the regional and central government.

We can build as tall as we want but it involves huge engineering skills, huge amount of money and massive risk in constructing the tower. I remember Burj Khalifa when they are still planning it, some of the engineers where reported very skeptical on the project.

What about Kingdom Tower, minimum 1000m.

Visionaries get things done in spite of the skeptics. if you don't have skeptics then what you are trying to do most likely isn't worth doing.
