I don’t know what it is about Skyscrapers, maybe its the kid in me that gets fascinated by them, the taller the better. When the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the world’s tallest building, was being built and was finally opened I looked at any and all pictures that I could. I loved watching Tom Cruise climbing it in ‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol’ and then learning that he was actually on the outside of the real building and that there weren’t any special effects done to those scenes.
Gives me chills thinking about it.
So, the second I saw this article on Discovery I opened it up and flipped through the images and I have to say we as humans continue to look towards the sky and I cannot wait to read up on all of these buildings.
Here is one of them right here in the US:
432 Park Avenue
When it officially opens this spring, the all-residential 432 Park Avenue skyscraper in midtown Manhattan (1,396 feet/426 meters) will be the second-tallest building in New York City, behind One World Trade Center.
