Well, if Vegas doesn't build it, Dubai will probably just build a taller version.

No Las Vegas WILL build it, and Dubai will TRY to build it, but it'll end up looking like crap.

For an example, the Al Yacoub Tower or whatever which is a complete rip from the Big Ben.

I think they'll build it. I like the tower fine and Las Vegas is all about crazy buildings so it fits.

Who cares what Dubai does? It isn't a competition...not amongst us anyway. Dubai has plenty of awesome buildings and this one won't affect that. Dubai isn't the only place allowed to build giant buildings.

This is a really big step for Las Vegas skyline since the tallest buildings today are just around 30 stories tall!

Actually, Las Vegas has a number of buildings over 50 stories, I believe, with buildings of 60 stories or more u/c.
