Tallest Skyscraper in the World

Hyder Consulting decided to amaze the whole world with a structure that will be twice as tall as the Burj Dubai, according to a consultant involved with the project making it by far the tallest tower ( skyscraper ) in the world. Considering the Burj Dubai will rise to 818m, the new tower will be over 1,600m tall, making it the world’s first mile-high tower. The architects are not sure (or at least, they’re not giving details) about where the amazing 5,250-foot-tall structure will be built – only, that it will be somewhere in the Middle East region. I don’t think that we really need something like this, but when some people want to amaze they try all kinds of outrageous things. Anyway I’m sure that the view would be amazing, but also if you stay at the “n+1″ flor you’ll spend some time just to come back to the ground. – Via – Bldgblog

    Rag clothed monkey’s .. Seriously it’s very ignorant to say that about people who have more money then most of us can imagine . YOUR lifestyle is more then likely the true rag whilst theirs are riches .

    A bit rediculous. Why that high you’ll never sell everything. Then there is the permanent lower temperature at 1600 meter. The big wind gusts. Completely obsolete

    hey guys you are just calculating the absurdity of the hyder tower which is just double the height of burj dubai. Then what about the possiblities of ULTIMA TOWER in US and X SEED 4000 in JAPAN???

    I look at the world and am utterly amazed with what us tiny humans can pull off.
    Regardless, I can’t help but feel that higher might not be the solution for the XXI century.
    I belive that the path to sucess will lie inwards, rather then upwards. I too dream of better every day, but as poor people all around the world die of starvation, thirst and desease, all those efforts of making a mile high building seem vacant and meaningless.

    But we are what we are, and we will be as we always were.
    In this existence there isn’t much to look forward to exept being loved, and admired, if having a tall buidling with your name on it makes you happy, pursue it.

    I’m sure all the people you could have helped with all your money are going to cheer for you from the other side…

    What I don’t understand is why do all these big companies invest metric tons of cash into countries where the whole concept of “human rights” gets pointed and laughed at.

    I Think in that height the company building it would call NASA to request for astronaut suits be cause in that height, IT WILL BE THE FORCE OF GRAVITY PUSHING DOWN.Elevators WILL FALL DOWN,OUR FACES WILL BE FALLING DOWN ON THE GROUND,and such.And OUR BODY WILL RUN OUT OF OXYGEN THEN…. You know what’s next.

  19. Laurens said:

    That company is EXTREMELY RICH.It would take DECADES to build it.It’s MASSIVE STRUCTURE and it’s WIDTH is impossibly HEAVY.Which may cause the WHOLE STRUCTURE to FALL DOWN WITH ITS WEIGHT with the FORCE OF GRAVITY.

    Almost all tall buildings go to Middle East.My Question is…Is it because of space and the tourist economy of the Middle East?
