However, I'm not sure if the structures in middle east asia also considers the impact of earthquacke in their strucutres (like magnitude 6 to 7).

Interesting concept. I'd laugh if the oil prices crashed and this building got stuck half way.

I dont really think its much of a joke because even if it get stuck halfway it is already very near to threaten BD height.

Unless you in your town find a way to extract the oil from sand for peanuts, the high oil prices are here to stay.

The twins surrounding the main tower need to be taller. The height is fantastic, but I have doubts on anyone actually building it.

This website is called Skyscrapercity. Who ever does not want this to be built, don't post here.

I hope the build this. It is NIMBY and not my money. This would be the legendary mile high building.

Oh, and some conversions are needed here.

One mile = 1609 m, not 1600 m.

A mile is 5280 ft, there is an extra foot in the title.
