And also, if this model is right, then the wing that reaches 1KM is the one that we don't see on earthcam.

You know, just to make a point. This building is going to be tall. Very tall. Like 1000m tall.

They only needed to add them over the last 100 years due to all the big things we keep building

Or wait maybe it is just a hook on crane

Normally it has a cloaking device powered by dark energy, but the energy got a bit brighter, briefly, before re-cloaking. Unfortunately, the skyhook was seen by thousands of muggles before it disappeared.
