Yes I'm sure this 1km tall tower is way worse for aviation than the 8km tall, and 4000km wide, Himalaya. Or 6km tall, and 3000km long Andes. Or the 4km tall Alps, and the other thousand mountain ranges all around the world that are several km taller and more massive than this tower. Like Trump would say, it's Huuuge... ...Huuuge problem this tower. It's too high... ...planes can't fly.

While I agree that the tower is no problem to aviation, it is not because there are taller things on earth. There is also not an airport within 10 km of those things. There is an airport quite close to this tower, but both runways are perpendicular from the location of the tower, and the only flight routes that appear to come close to the tower is an exit route that flys out of the west side of the airport, then it turns heading back southeast just south of the tower but the altitude by then is almost 5 kilometers and poses little danger to the tower. I do believe the image on this thread is from that route.

At least from that aerial photo we can definitely guesstimate again at a 3,000-4,000+ foot range for height. Taking into terrible perspective guesses we see Festival City Helipad on the left there with D1 Tower (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D1_(building)). It's already really tall, and this Tower of course makes that look like a mid-rise haha.

Source, my own guesses and the fact I took the heli tour from that area in the image.

If the clouds are covering the city and the top part will stick out above it, it will look straight out of a sci-fi movie.

This is one of the most amusing comments I have seen on this site in quite a while... I don't really even know why
