That's the answer I was looking to the question: "What does current tech max out at?

So with current innovations and concrete tech we *could* see 2km scrapers some time in the decades ahead, with no additional innovations required!

Who has Euro 5bn to spare?

What drives skyscraper construction is the economy and access to credit. If you can find someone to fund a 2 km tower, there are plenty of people who would like to see it done and would offer to build it. I don't expect that for decades though.

I think it's time for the next Shanghai's Supertall project to come up. Shanghai Tower is not far from topping out, and once it's finished I would really like to see another futuristic and amazing building getting built in this city, of course in the Pudong Area

BTW my jaw drops everytime I check for new updates here!!
