Besides, it's very nearly been half my life time since I was inspired by the great old 'Shard of Glass' proposals of 2006!

Isn't this the "one mile high" tower proposed by Frank Lloyd Wright?

SSP has an awesomely looking new drawing of the Kingdom Tower. The tower looks beautiful in it, though it changes my roof height estimates. According to this newest drawing the roof height of the Kingdom Tower is 777 meters or 2 549 feet. The previous drawing estimated the roof height to be approximately 840 meters or 2 756 feet

comparing the two diagrams shows that we still have no idea how tall the tower will actually appear when it is done. i am still thinking we do not know the final height as well

In some photo's, you can already see other structures under construction in the surroundings.
