Cost. Anything over about 1000 feet starts to require a fair bit more engineering and the game basically changes (per my understanding...don't ask me what changes exactly)

These behemoths you see going up in China and Dubai look nice to enthusiasts like us but they're nowhere near as cost-effective as splitting a mega-tall building in two height-wise.
