French architectural studio, Rescubika, proposes skyscraper that would be the tallest building in New York. The building design is called Mandragore and it would be a 2400-foot-tall tower. It would have a lot of trees and plants that would trap carbon emissions and reduce carbon in the atmosphere. However, Rescubika has not been getting many of its designs built.
The Freedom Tower is the tallest building in New York at 1776 feet tall.
The tallest building in the world is the Burj Khalifa of Dubai (828 meters divided across 163 floors).
The Jeddah Tower is being built and it will reach 1008 meters in height.
There was steady progress but in January 2018 building owner JEC halted structural concrete work with the tower about one-third completed due to labor issues with a contractor following the 2017–19 Saudi Arabian purge. JEC has said they plan to restart construction in 2020.
A taller skyscraper is planned for Iraq. It would be 1150 meters tall and is called the Bride.
