    World's Tallest Skyscraper planned

    World's tallest skyscraper will be a MILE HIGH and twice as tall as the Burj


    New York Post
    By HANA R. ALBERTS
    6 Feb 2016

    PLANS are underway to build a MILE-HIGH skyscraper in Japan.



    If approved the huge tower would be the tallest building in the world, dwarfing the current record-holder, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai which is half as tall at 2,717ft (828m).

    Located in Tokyo Bay, an inlet southeast of the city proper, the plan — dubbed Next Tokyo — wouldn’t just be a single massive building, but if approved would emerge as a mini city designed to combat climate change.

    Stupid looking building with a lot of wasted floor space. That thing could be a serious hazard to aviation too.

    Actually, that's what it will look like after the radiation poisoning.

    It'll just be a normal building when built.

    So, they're going to erect the tallest building in the world in a zone known for its earthquakes and tsunamis.

    That'll be nice.

    Thanks for correcting Barbaro's oversight by providing a link, Misskit.

    Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, a very talented architectural firm that I had the pleasure of working with on a project in Cincinnati. They also designed the World Financial Center in Shanghai. Sounds like a fascinating project. Will look forward to seeing how this progresses.

    That's what I was thinking.

    And, it looks like this building is more of a synthetic, tower that's not being used at the top end, but just extends up to be a "record breaker."

    Unstable land mass.
    Wouldn't be the wisest move.
