Let's have a look: The more high you are, the longer day you have! You will see an amazing sunset as the last person at the exact location - people at the ground will have a night in that moment. And you will be the first out from the bed, because you will see the sunrise as the first one..
Wouldn't it be great? .

So when you build at sea level, you are 1000m above SEA LEVEL!

If you are on top of a mountain, let's use the Zugspitze in Germany for example, you are at almost 3000m. Does it really make a difference to see the sunrise or sunset 30 seconds earlier or later? If you had an outdoor elevator, could you see the sunrise then push the button for the bottom floor and see it again? Or push all the buttons and see it 105 times?

How about at the top of Mt. Everest? 29,000 feet or 8848m! Then build the skyscraper on top if it. THAT would make a difference. (Once you pumped oxygen up to the tower)

I calculated it to approx. 4 min or something, dont know if i did it correct.
1/w * atan ( sqrt(2h/R) ) = sqrt(2h / R)/w
h = tower height = 1000, R = earth radius = 6'500'000, w = angularvelocity = 2pi/24h ????
Did i do this correctly?

Yippie! That would be just great. One could try to go even higher to, lets say, Umeň Sweden. Live in a flat like i do with no curtains. Its not even dark at midnight, i hate this sun

Why don't you go outside of the PC to breathe fresh air when your mood isn't at it's best?

Well, I didn't count it. Just imagined it . Anyway, it would depend on the season, surface characteristics of the set/rise, and so many other things.

The sunrise could be earlier about only several seconds. But seeing the aftersunset sky would take minutes..

But I agree with the angry one. The visible and worthy difference could be seen at 8km+. But it wasn't about the fact, but FEELING, that if you buy an apartment for several millions, you can expect also the added value of feeling you have a longer day represented by earlier sunrise and later sunset. That's all.

How does one judge anger, or fun ideas, just from typed words....

Must be a personal thing.

Funny.

I live at the top of a mountain that is exactly 1000 feet above the surrounding flat areas. I love every second of the evenings I can see the sunset and its' long after-effects. I would love to live on a km high tower at the very top, no matter where it was built. The problem is, how many people in the world will be able to experience it in a building (those with extreme money, at least in our lifetime) or those who live on a mountain and can only pretend our living room is in a skyscraper!

I did a quick calculation. It involves the geo latitude and the season so it gets a little complicated, but rougly speaking you will have almost half an hour of extra sunlight each day at the top. Which is more than I expected myself, I must say. But who really wants more sunlight in Kuwait?

Only thing making this look like BD is separate towers rising at different heights.
