altitude sickness affects people differently. it can sometimes take a week to develop.

At 8,000 feet? Honestly, 8,000 is not bad at all. If that were the case, most people who went to ski resorts in the winter would develop alititude sickness.

That would really be such a waste of resources and money. I would be all for such a building in theory but there are other more important thing for engineers to be working on...

This article refered to this project only as a "TOWER" which means it could be a broadcasting tower with an observation deck / restaurant on the top. The article NEVER used the word "BUILDING" or "SKYSCRAPER" to describe this project, so I think we need to find out exactly what it is before we all get too excited.
I am the Picture Guy - A picture is worth a thousand words.

What is the point? Really, the cost would be prohibitive too!
