|vartal||Thompson Center Redevelopment|
|Ultros||TCR would be awesome, but come on now... it's the U.S., developers there are risk-averse old farts with no vision. It's not happening.|
|DUBAI10000||I agree with naruciakk that would basically be a monument in Dubai vs. a capital creation invsetment in Chicago. Americans though always have to knock another country for its skyscrapers, they are either tacky and for profit, lavish luxury bullshit or just for show.

|Gabriel900||Burj 2020 is not 550m!! thats the second Dubai project with a major flaw in its info!

|naruciakk||Definitely Chicago. Why? Because this one is going to be highly efficient capital allocation, useful for the economy, and not just a nice monument.

Nice way to present your racism lol

That comment was by no means thought to be racist. It's just a fact that in many cases supertalls in the middle east are not meant to be profitable, but to be a monument (like Burj Khalifa). If it's not the case in this situation, then my apologies.
