I say any height would be fantastic as long as on completion it is the tallest man made structure, as Burj Dubai is now.

the holdings said the building will rise higher than 1000m, but if it did turn out to be 1000m and 50cms, everybody will feel so pissed.

so I think 1000.5m will not be the height they're thinking of.

The height of these buildings are really getting outrageous. It's not about how tall you can make the building, it's really about the design. But I guest its harder to claim who has the greatest looking building in the world. So tallest will have to do.

They say it is not on hold but they don't say when construction will begin. So the status in unknown. That makes it easier for the media to throw guesses left and right.

and maybe in the galaxy far far away, of course with the assist of wormholes we can do that quite easily.

lets celebrate the fact that there probably was a mistake in the translation, the building is not on hold...
