2. Once complete, the building will stand at least 3,280 feet tall

3. The original design was to be one-mile-high (1.6 km), but the geology of the area was not suitable for that height

4. The structure will be home to the world’s highest observatory

5. The building is so big they are unable to show it realistically in one rendering. Only elevations and birds-eye views can contain the entire project!
