Fair enough. But the skyscraper started here. Not there for the sake of debate.

Some of these buildings are just amazing. I love looking at the architectural designs involved.

Things are relative despite the boom in the US it's nowhere close to the boom in Asia so they are basically getting out built . A 1776 foot building maybe the real deal in the US but it's just one of a dozen more buildings completed or U/C in Asia.

1776 feet might get the fist pumping brigade going in NYC for the simple reason they most of them haven't seen anything taller. In the States bigger equates to better ans because America is better than everybody else then everything in Amercia must be bigger than anywhere else.

Eventually the Chickens will come home to roost , the penny will drop .

Yeah, of the Big 12 metros there are new tallest buildings in Los Angeles, Miami, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Washington. That's 5 of the 12. New York has a new tallest by roof height U/C (Central Park Tower). So half are building a new tallest in some form. Boston is completing their 3rd tallest (with a new one even taller starting construction), Chicago has 3 supertalls in the pipeline (including one in the advanced stages that will be the 3rd tallest). Houston and Seattle are also building taller than 200m. So of the Big 12, only Atlanta, Dallas and Detroit are stagnant right on on the skyscraper front.

I am not even talking anything super crazy like Jeddah either. Just something in NYC or Chicago like Ping An. Not over the top. Tall enough to turn heads. Maybe 2030. One can hope.
If the number 1776 is really so important, why not limit US building heights to 1776 meters? Of course that would require some imagination in metric terms. Frank Lloyd Wright would surely be happy if alive in his grave.

Because Americans use feet and not meters.

I'm not sure if it's posted already here, but I've found very interesting article with most probably group of 20 tallest megatalls in 2020:

http://www.ctbuh.org/TallBuildings/H...S/Default.aspx

Unfortunately the Ping An Finance Center in Shenzhen will be not so high in that competition like in the publication...
