The mechanical floors 40-42 took pretty long. Now they'll work on regular floors again with at least 1 floor per week.....at least i hope it.

Maybe due to BK's tiers that always gave us little intermediate goals to celebrate. With JT's linear silhuette, I can come back to this thread after months and it still looks the same on first look if I don't look closely and count floors.

It's true that places have always tried to attract attention by building the world's tallest building. It's a tried and tested approach. If a critical mass of city builds up around it to support it, it could eventually be a success and eventually the huge sums required to run the building could be met by occupants. But it would stand a much better chance if it was built in a city centre.

However, a giant tower surrounded by a shopping mall, built as a vanity project and not driven by real demand is destined to fail.

However, it will look cool and push the boundaries of human achievement

Somehow, Burj Khalifa works just fine with the same concept.

BK created the demand by its uniqueness, so a copy wouldn't fare as well.

This is ridiculous both in content and size! The tower can't be even seen

Futuristic is what may come in future. This term should not encompass those childish fantasy "designs". I think they were done by preteen kids (most of the mandatory structural elements were simply discarded, like kids draw).

Indeed. I don't see the sense of posting pics like that.
