I hope you guys can see this is not a realistic proposal.

Maybe when human beings colonize space 1,000 years from now they can put this on Mars.

What I don't get is why they propose these types of mammoth structures in the middle of an already-established area? I think it would be much more impressive if it was built, say, off the east or west coasts somewhere or on a plain in Kansas, or in a mountain valley in Utah, where there was nothing else built for miles and miles and miles.
That would be nice and impressive.

I can imagine that some back-fill dumped along the shores would be required for putting this thing on the end of the Peninsula. A 10,000-foot tower of this shape. Imagine the footprint of its base. Apparently, whoever came up with this idea for a "city within a city" didn't consider how much ground area would be needed.

That is one ugly building. A forest of supertalls would ruin San Francisco, bury the hills.
