Tallest of the Tall

I am wondering what the tallest building ever drawn up in a concept is, and what the official tallest (in floor numbers) building built to date is. I am a sucker for supertalls... so anyone with photos of concepts or current supertall skyscapers please post them. I am curious as to which building or concept building/project has the most floors.

Hopefully I'll still be alive when the day comes when we are seeing 2000m+ structures...

But I'll have to take a trip to Dubai somewhere around 2010...

Not a building, but a structure at least - the Space Elevator would be thousands of miles high:

It's just a concept at this stage. I would have thought this was obvious.

Not necessarily. We have most of the technology to do this already. And the benefits would be enormous.
