Sadly the upcoming Burj Dubai as HWDP mention has a highest roof of up to 768m and highest inhabited floors at 701m.


The LMR alone is already taller than this drill bit monster
is it going to have the tittle of the world's second inhabited floor??

^ How about a substantial amount of curved interior walls? I wonder if this could efficiently make use of the space.

In my conjecture I will speculate 'lmr' is land mobile radio, meaning a huge guyed antenna tower is taller than 2000 feet. I only thought TV towers were taller than 2000 feet

Am I the only one who notices that the diagonal creases create the illusion of the tower leaning to the right?

LMR= Lift Motor Room. normally located at very top of a skyscraper. room that houses lift mech.
there are NO guyed masts over 610m, only 3.
being KVLY/KTHI @ BLANCHARD-629M
KXJB TV @ GALESBURG-628M
KXTV/KOVR @ WALNUT GROVE-624M
then there are 27 masts @ 609.5m tall. all in US. then another 30 at 600m high.

Quite interesting indeed, I too have noticed that.

By the way why is the water in that canal beside's the building site of the chicago spire so green?? The water look's very clean, it look's like you can drink from it.

I'm proud of the fact that we are the only city in the world with a giant 2000' *****. Imagine how many more female tourists will "come" to chicago in order to pay homage. I'm looking forward to the masses.

I'm surprised so many people are posting this. The river is actually extremely polluted, but there are many efforts being made to clean it up and it is really working. www.chicagoriver.org is a great organization doing such work.

While it is polluted no doubt I would say for an urban river it is pretty darn clean. They even did test a few months back on if fish were safe enough to eat and they found that occasional catch could be eaten from the river (if one wanted to, yuck) and that the mercury and other toxins were below daily suggested intake. I wouldn't put river fish in my weekly diet though by any means. It is not an Alpine spring but I would take my chances over swimming in the Yangtze or even Thames.

LOL, hahahaha

Unless you want diarrhea for a week I strongly suggest not drinking the river water. :-]

No, like nomarandlee said it's surprisingly clean, I wouldn't drink from it though.

Weird!



What is the name of the tower in the middle, and where is it being built?
