I want to see a massive, tall, tapering building in the middle of a city of low-rises, to give the most imposing effect.

The closest thing to that, I guess, is in a tower-less desert city (or at least far from towers)
Not Dubai, though, because they already have an ultra-tall building.

They should build it triangular and with very deep foundations so if a very strong earthquake occured near the building, then it'll still stand.

Definitely New York City. There's no place in the world that would deserve to have the World's tallest more than NYC. After all, NYC held the title for so long

It is technically possible, and there are places on earth where it have some chances to get build. It's just that New York is not one of those places. Which was well covered why in this thread.

But let the kid dreaming

Huh, where do you see me say that this will be built, where do you see me say that this is realistic, where do you see me say that I believe this will be built? I just love when somebody, who doesn't read my post and confabulates about things I have never written tries to lecture me

Sorry, I thought we discuss here where and why it actually have chances to get build.

I forgot your posts are usually just irrational wishful tinging. Like adding 600m twins to the existing wtc

1st I never ever said that 600m Twin Towers will be added to the WTC site.

2nd I never ever said that I thought this proposal had any chance of being built anywhere in the world in the forseeable future.

You know, fantasy is usually a good thing but if you start to generate statements of other people inside your head it stops being called fantasy and starts being called lying.

Oh, and I think you're naive if you thing that this proposal has a chance in any city in the world in the forseeable future.

I don't think they will build it one mile tall (if anything probably closer to something from 1200-1400m). However it has been reported that with current technology we can build towers up to 2km tall, so it is technically feasible. And while in china or some arabian state it has some slight chance of getting build (1km tall tower u/c is best proof that anything is possible there) in new york it has none, zero, nada So saying that it should be build there is just pointless. I can very well say I'd like to see it in my backyard.

In case you didn't notice, this proposal isn't 1200-1400 meter tall, it is 1600 meter tall, so you should stay focused on the height the article says and not imagine another height.

And no, such a building isn't the slightest bit less realistic in New York City than it is in China or some arabian state. It is equaly unrealistic in any of these cities.

You missed the part where I said 2km tall buildings are feasible with current technology?

And you apparently don't understand the difference between technically feasible and economically feasible

I'd love to see this in NYC or Chicago, but I doubt zoning would permit such a building.

If it was only zoning. FAA for instance would have to allow a building that almost triples it's top allowed height of 600m And there are other reasons we already talked about.

Yeah, I though of that as well. Unfortunately it's probably not going to happen here.
