I love the Nakheel Tower proposal, looks like a giant ray cannon sticking out of the desert.

Kingdom Tower in Jeddah , Saudi Arabia a.k.a. The Mile High Tower (on the previous page). It won't be as high as a mile probably. The realistic high is around 1001-1100m.

Just to note that we don't even have anything that's 1km high... the CN Tower had the title of highest for 3 decades and the burj khalifa just recently is around 800m.

when will we have anything closes to 1km, nevermind a mile.

Somewhere around 2019-2020 first higher than 1km should be completed. There are to accepted skyscrapers now : Kingdom Tower and Madinat al Hareer.
Also slightly higher than Burj will be probably built in Dubai , called Dubai One (850m).

Can't wait for the new World Trade Center.

One world trade center is rising at a story a week. As of this post, it is currently at 62 stories

I love the design for Two World Trade Center. Especially the diamonds at the top.
