I think this and taller Skyscrapers can only be built now by pyramid like shape...
Dubai tower could be that tall without this shape?

if you want to open more the building base you can build 1km even 2 km high buildings,like Babel tower,sigurat,and pyramids...

You forget the most important question: Where do the additional 10 meters come from???

Even Imre said you only see 818 meters on the plans...

That might had been top secret until the openning day.

The music and the videoclips shown before the fireworks were a bit tacky with all the "Carmina Burana"-like music, but hey, you deserve it when you are showing the world's biggest building.

I wonder if the 828 m are endorsed by the CTBUH.
