Everything is bigger in Texas, including grandiose over-sized never built Sears Tower replicas.

The building would have required 600sq. miles of adjacent surface parking lots.

Almost like the Sears Tower, but a triangle foot print, but the same concept. This thing if built, would 1) Make all the buildings irrelevant, 2) be seen from New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Mississippi. But lets say hypothetically they started construction in the 80's and the Burj Dubai finished 828 m and over '160' floors in less than 7 years, it would take over 20 years to finish this, so probably would've been done by the early to mid 2000's.

I just hope that Houston gets a similar smaller tower in the future.

meh. The crummy clay soil in Houston would NEVER old that much weight, even if spread over a 15 block area.
