"BigFoot" is a skyscraper 1938 ft. tall above grade and 172 ft deep below. The outside perimeter is 830 ft square. It is composed of two connected buildings - the foot building and the core building. All 14 sub-grade floors of the "foot" building are attached to the core building on 4 levels at 4 diagonal points. A ground-level inner vehicular access ring is responsible for the seeming detachment of 10 above-ground-level floors of the "foot" building from the "core" building. However, at four compass points, 4 floors over the inner vehicular access ring, 4 glass-encased "bridges" connect each of the highest 6 floors of the "foot" building to the "core" building. The 6 floors where the "bridges" occur, are all of the floors of the "foot" building that house a mall. This mall tops a 17 level garage, 13 levels of which are below ground-level. The garage is 5205000 sq. ft and parks 13000 cars. Below the garage is one level of service rooms that is 29 ft high. The "foot" building of "BigFoot" surrounds the "core" building which is 8623000 sq. ft gross of commercial space and 5135000 sq. ft of garage. The core rises 136 stories above ground level. High up above the 126th floor are three domes. The twin domes are lookout posts, while the highest dome caps a 3 floor revolving restaurants. Below the restaurants is a 6 floor inverted dome and neck that sits on the shoulders of the "core" building. Unlike the "foot" building and because of the greater height of the "core" building floors (14 ft to the garage's 10 ft height), the "core" building is 12 floors deep. These 12 floors, including the 8 directly above them, are exclusively for retail business. The rest of the "core" building houses mostly offices.
