Patrykus, why did you capitalize Pakistan and not American in the last sentence of your last post?

For a very mysterious reason I won't reveal to you


Anyway will edit it for you if that bothers you so much.

edit: hmm can't edit it. I guess because I edited it before. Sorry, you have to live with that.

There would be riots in the street if they tried to build this in London, and it would be DOA to NYC's approval process.

A mile-high tower would look terribly out of scale almost anywhere you put it.

Even next to Shanghai's big 3 it would be sort of ludicrous (2.5x as tall as the next tallest), although it still feels to me like the best fit.

Having the Burj already would make it the least out of place in Dubai, but it's hard to see a Saudi prince adding more prestige to an economic rival.

Personally, wouldn't want to see it in NY, at least until there are multiple 2000/2500ft+ towers to balance it out.

One interesting route would be to build a modern version of "The Illinois" in Chicago, with a tip of the hat to Frank Lloyd Wright. But that's a level of deference to an American icon that it's hard to imagine coming from Alwaleed.

I wonder, why not just build it in Riyadh? Or Jeddah, overshadowing Kingdom Tower?

I want Shanghaï,but I think Dubaï because it will be perfect for their skyline with Burj Dubaï and The Laggons...Cities like Moscow London Tokyo or New York are very expensive...

I don't think it would look good anywhere outside of the Middle East. It might suit Russia though.

i think it would look good nearly anywhere, just very different. after all taipei 101 also looks great getting all the attention within the skyline. Sure it would make any surrounding building look tiny, but that doesn't need to be a bad thing per se. especially for cities like new york or hong kong that do not have a real center of attention, would improve the skyline into a new direction i think.

Taipei is really a bad example. It had no skyline to destroy really . There was no more than 20 towers over 100m and one over 200m in 2004 in taipei. NY have over half a thousand of towers over 100m and over 50 over 200m. Just imagine subtle mountain of skyscrapers and then BANG a mile tall monster Also while taipei was 5 times taller than 100m towers present in the city, a mile tower would be 8 times taller than 200m towers of ny.

Anyway it won't be build in ny for many other reasons.

Their data is outdated. Take a look in the # of 100m+ Buildings Completed, U/C, Proposed thread:

According to univer and isaidso, New York has about 750 buildings exceeding 100m. I even think it's more ...
Right now there are over 40 towers U/C + ~120 proposed.

The list is far from official though and the guy admitted that he is using roof height. But anyway i can imagine it's hard to count all the towers in ny so the ctbuh list can have some errors. I just thought you have some better source than a thread in ssc

Anyway if there are even hundreds more 100m+ towers in ny that makes my point even stronger.

I voted "Elsewhere," because clearly this tower belongs in Los Angeles.
