I agree deeply,

Considerign the cost of supports, structural logistics, buildign to survive crashes, hurricans, etc... One would imagine building DOWN would be much cheaper then building up.

Granted right now it would be more costly as the construction world has no real experiance with building down on a large scale. But given time, a 40 story "depthscaper" would be far more cost effective then a 40 story skyscraper.
