Nope. The 1992 proposal of Tokyo's Tower of Babel is more than twice the size.

This sort of nonsense is why SkycraperCity will always come second at best. This isn't even a proposal but here it is. Any kid with a pencil and a ruler could "envision" anything they want and people will take it seriously enough to make a thread about it.

4800 meters (which is far beyond anything of practical value) with no location named, idea of cost, or even perceived need and we have a thread about it.

It seems that most of the towers in the "megatall" section are just somebody's wet dream rather than anything even remotely serious or plausible.

I don't believe that Coruscant-style proposals should have be in the same league than Megatalls that are currently in construction or proposed from serious companies.

Heck, even buildings in Starwars or Startrek are more realistic than this. This and similar threads about unrealistic buildings should go somewhere else as they nothing more than distant dreams which will never be realised.

The city of the render reminded me Busan.

The proposals seems unrealistic. Not sure any building will get up to 15,000 feet, not even close.

Who wouldn't want to travel in an elevator for an hour from the top of a mountain to sea-level altitude every morning and evening?

Yes, of course I realize that. That's why I want to know why we even have a section dedicated to megatalls when it's full of crap some kid dredges up at random.

SkyscraperPage is better simply because the people who post tend to actually know what they're talking about, the information is vetted for the most part, they have rules that are adhered to, and, most importantly, they seem able to tell the difference between a vision and a serious proposal (which really shouldn't be that difficult) The only advantage that this place has over SSP is that it covers global projects much better.

If you were an outdoor observatory on top of it, it's good to bring snow clothing.

It's possible to breathe, but it may seem that the visitor has had a peck the night before. This altitude is only 700 meters below the highest settlement on top of mountains, where it's possible to have human adaptation. Almost the limit with low technological apparatus.

h = 4,800
T = -16.112
p = 55.57348
d = 0.753745

After 100 years we might need such buildings.

I'm beginning to hate this tower. 4800m? IMPOSSIBLE- at least until 2060. And by that time, only barely possible. And the shape? Abnormal. Simply abnormal. Too crazy. And in the picture in post 27, does anyone know what is the the second tallest building in the render to the right of this crazy Arconic Tower?

Am I allowed a little off topic?
Good to see you here, Spocket. And I think Skyscrapercity is better by forums because people are very nice here and there is a bigger variety of threads, and more posts in each thread, that give me more information about the buildings. And the posts are mostly good posts. And not to insult SSP, but here is really a bit better- but only at forums, in case you forgot.
SSP has a huge database and tons of diagrams, and maps to assist your research, whoever you may be.
So actually, in conclusion, I think both websites are equally good.
