Hey Crazy, that would be an awesome building if it goes to full height. Observatory and restaurant on top? Why the heck would anybody visit the stratosphere tower after this is opened to the public. Definitely not me.

agree, the stratosphere tower wouldn't be interesting much longer.

I doubt it. Stratosphere Tower is one of my favorite observation towers. I still find that tower interesting if anything get built that is much taller. It is just like my home city, Seattle that has an obversation tower called Space Needle even it is not Seattle's tallest. We still find that tower interesting. It will be same thing for Stratosphere Tower for sure.

Wouldn't you visit the stratosphere to see/take pictures of LVT from there?

Yeah but the LVT will not have rides on top.

Interesting! The only building in the world with rides on top of it, I think it is interesting.

uhh the FAA is so cheesy I hate how they have prevented taller buildings all around the country from being built

those planes fly at like 30,000 feet anyways so a 2,000 foot limit is ridiculously low

we can't even build higher then 500 feet here in Phoenix because of the FAA

The FAA is concerned with a lot more than just commercial airliners at their cruising altitude.
