No it isn't and it's not even a Birmingham building. From what I gather he and fellow Birmingham forumer Sandblast have a lot of spats in the UK forums city rivalry threads but I never go there anyway. Inappropriate for this thread Leeds Troll, back on topic.

Thank you so much HK999. I've been rather concerned about my Chinese data as it's such a big country with so much construction going on.

Are the tallest buildings that I've listed in these cities still correct? You seem to be in the middle of your analysis so I will hold off an hour or so before correcting the lists. Awesome work!

Night, night. zzzzzzz

Wikpedia has the roof height of IFC at 484 m and for SWFC at 487 m. I've used these figures for now. Btw, your data has propelled China to the top of the charts.
