Amazing Skylines with URBANITY is what we all should be talking about here folks. Nashville Tennessee after all if building a megatall skyscraper...but WHO CARES?? it's in Nashville of all places. It's all about context.

After all, who really cared that Kuala Lumpur had the tallest building for several years?? Most people to this day do not know of Kuala Lumpur nor care to visit the place.
I did since I'm part Malaysian It's like who cares if Dubai builds the tallest building in the world and so. In fact I don't really care that much. What I more care is that I'm a HKer, we have a nice skyline, we have a nice city and it doesn't matter if any other city build scrapers taller than ours

Actually, Chicago cared very much when the Petronas Towers were completed as they complained Petronas got the title with its spire and subsequent debates followed, even here in SSC.

One word. "Pride". It encourage the locals to work more to keep them up. It symbolizes the payoff (a trophy) for their hard work and prosperity. Even though common people did not recognize Kuala Lumpur, global investors came in and put their money to the city and the country. In 1990s, Malaysia became the most successful country in ASEAN region after Singapore.

I can see how the world revolves around you, you ignorant fella.

You're just disatisfied with the fact that the Petronas Towers beat Sears to claim the tallest title.

Yaya, nobody knows Kuala Lumpur, too bad then if they are all ignorant people like you.
