It is all relative! 550 meters may not look that tall in Dubai. But if you put this supertall in Tokyo or Europe it would have a huge environmental impact.
Suggestion: If you have photoshop, make a copy of the building and then paste in a picture of your local city and see how it compares with the rest of the buildings.

I'd be quite curious to see how a behemoth like the Taipei 101 would look in the middle of nowhere, must be crazy.

Considering the height of the surrowinding buildings, Taipei 101 IS in the middle of nowhere.

At the spot where this tower should come, approximately, there was a lot of activity going on this evening. Many big cranes, concrete pumps in action etc...

That's for the park gate towers (the 6 smaller ones with the hanging gardens) that are just in front of this tower. The houses on the site of this tower haven't been demolished yet.

I think 550 meters is an awesome height !!! Why we think it's not that high it's because off these super-megatalls like Nakheel Tower !

If you have a look at Taipei 101 -- it's a monster ...
