Tokyo

at least there are already many utopic designs like X-Seed 4000, but I doubt it.

The reason why Singapore has a height limit is because the city's CBD a bit close to the airport.

But I'm in favour for a 300+ metre scraper if better, a freestanding tower kinda like the AMP Tower in Sydney or CN Tower in Toronto. This kind of tower will look cool in SG's skyline

Miami! Its the one thing Miamis skyline is starving for! There is one in serious talk and there were twin towers a while ago that never went anywhere but Miami really does need/deserve one already.

It is possible to build it in all countries.
Technology is necessary.

Yes, I know, but I didn't think it was under construction, is it?

Philadelphia, Miami, Toronto, Vancouver, San Francisco, Boston, Tokyo, Frankfurt, Mexico City, Dallas, and Jersey City...

-Maybe JC doesn't need one but it would be pretty cool if they got one..
- I know Boston kinda has one in the works. Now get it off the drawing board and off the ground.
- Philadelphia does alright without one but they will one day push the envelope and build a 1,458' masterpiece.. My physcic friend told me.
- Vancouver needs some more highrises that break 500' and 600' but put a sweet soaring glass supertall in the middle and it will look perfect.

- Toronto already has an 1,800' tower but I would love to see at least 3 over 1,000'. Particularly one 1,200' in Midtown on Jarvis St. , and two in the core in particular two 1,100' buildings.

- Mexico City twins breaking 1000'

- Dallas needs like tons of new midrises but I think they're getting just that. I'd also like to see Reunion Tower to BOA get filled in. And in that area one 1,300' tower.

Miami better get that new twisting tower. Ontop of that I would say the skyline could handle more 700' towers than it's got and getting and let's a sweet 1,200' building in Brickell to compliment the one near the Biscayne wall.

Frankfurt needs mid and low rises but I think it would be cool to see something break 1000' there.

San Francisco is getting Pelli's transbay tower I think. I hope it becomes a trend to build tall in San Francisco.

Tokyo would look great with about 6-7 supertalls. Put them everywhere.

How about Brisbane Australia? If you ask me, our city is pretty height less in terms of skyline, the largest building I think only goes as high as 550-600ft, but mostly is only filled with low rise and high rise buildings, a 1000 footer would be perfect.

JC doesn't need it. Put the supertalls in Manhattan instead. There was a supertall planned for Newark back in the early 90s and it was supposed to be the world's tallest but was scrapped.
