Too tall is possible for a hater though (if a record breaking tower isn't being built in their city/country), and there are a few on here.

America can hardly get a 600 meter tower built... I'd love it if this part of the world could set a record again but I'd be shocked if it happens in my lifetime.

"america" doesnt build towers. various real estate companies do. im sure the govt could build an enormous sky ***** if they wanted to, but that waste of money probably wouldnt go over well with voters.

In terms of wasting money, the USA already is the frontrunner.

You know what I meant, no need for word games.

Developers here don't have any balls.

they build what they think will sell.
maybe the problem is companies are not willing to spend that much money for trophy offices. and the ones that are willing usually build their own thing, a hq tower, office campus, ect.

Nothing is too tall for us human.
We went to the moon so 1 km high skyscraper is nothing if we reallly want it.
It concern all the human and nothing resist human will and courage.
One day there will be 2 km high or more skyscrapers.

The Burj - financed by Sheik Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahayan, head of the United Arab Emirates

Kingdom Tower - financed by Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal

Developers in the US aren't connected to the government or a monarch so they have vastly different concerns. These towers are being built as part of a strategy to add tourism, attract businesses, and diversify these countries economies. Because they are smart enough to know that once the oil runs out if they haven't diversified they're screwed. Nobody wants to go hangout in the desert for shits and gigs.

Yikes. What does that say about the rest of the world if the USA is the frontrunner both in wasting money and making money.
