I think Moscow or London, because Europe is devoid of supertalls.

Whether you like it or not and there are multitudes who will agree with me, Moscow is a Major Political/Cultural centre of the world. Period. I guess you are confusing Moscow with Morocco

Personally, I feel that Hong Kong / Shenzhen would be a good catch, since this is the centrepiece of ~80 million Pearl River City continuous urban area, the world's largest mega city, with 160 km from one to the other end of the skyline

Even in HK, if built in Kowloon Bay area where the former airport was, it could be possible to consider, and for Shenzhen, surely - the "old" Luohu CBD needs exactly this kind of landmark for a rapid revival. Shenzhen itself has 17 million population and growing, and has those huge areas suitable to put up supports for this kind of tower.

Saudi-Milliardär Prinz Alwaleed bin Talal could build the one mile high tower instead of the TV Tower in Berlin. In Germany it is really time for a world record and Berlin is how made for this tower..

Yeah. Moscow is an Alpha World City. I also think that anybody who was alive during the Soviet Union will always remember it as being the seat of one of the two world superpowers. So while the playing field has leveled out in the last 20 years as other developing cities and nations have risen to prominence, Moscow will always have a certain cachet.

I would take four 400 meter towers for Mumbai than this. Mumbai don't need such towers.

yes. Especially as Berlin is so good in building other things like airports or castle/shopping mall replicas....

To my mind it would be a great idea to build this tower in a hot weather country.
The temperature will be about 5 degrees lower at the upper floors. This would be a kind of a luxury.

I think it should be built in Kuala Lumpur as there is still plenty of open space available even near the Petronas Twin Towers!

if nicely designed it wouldn't really ruin any city in my opinion. instead it would reinvent the skyline of the city completely.
