Video incorrect. They need to put Shanghai Tower instead of World Financial center.

Lol I know, I was just messing around. A lot of people seem to think it is though (or they're just trolls). But even without any of the buildings planned to be built around the KT it's hardly in the middle of nowhere like so many people like to claim, and the photo I quoted above demonstrates that.

The world's tallest building is going up in the middle of nowhere. How unlike the history of the reasoning for building tall. Nonetheless, Frank Lloyd Wright would be proud that his Mile High design is finally being built 60 years after he designed it (although only a Kilometer High).
