I dont care about the height. The design is more important. Thats why I voted for Chicago Spire.

If any of these super tallest were to ever fall down (9/11 attack), the mess would be devastating.

No, I'm looking at these mile-high super towers being built.

If those super-duper towers were to be attacked, it would completely destroy the entire city.

It can't be avoided because you simply can't forget what had happened and what could happen.

This is a different world we are living in.

The design is just beautiful, and the location(the lake around) make it even more spectacular.

Of course there are some height freaks, but this building even at 400m would have been one of the most beautiful in the world.

For me, the downside of this building is really the height... is so tall, it really dwarfs all 200-300m buildings around, making the overall skyline look less impresive.

I don't know why everybody picks the burj, it's the biggest yes but there are better towers out there.
