JULY 2010-Worlds tallest construction diagram (400m+)

well been 6months.
ive tried to decifer what is going on with many of the supertalls. Ive removed many because of GFC, eg-chicagos Spire, moscows tower, al burj alam, ect
BUT ive added in shanghai tower,pingan ifc ect.
please let me know if ive missed any or more should be removed.??
ie-lotte tower,barwa tower,jialing fanying tower and IFC in chongquing??
The most amazing progress ive seen is Kingkey Tower in Shenzhen (newest supertall) and tokyos skytree! also not to forget the massive Makkah Hotel in Mecca!

Thank you so much! I can remember that there were only a few buildings on that diagram a few years ago. And look how many there are now. Incredible!

I remember some people saying that after 9/11 and the economic crisis, the era of high skyscrapers was pretty much over. They had no idea they were so wrong.

Worldwide u/c-diagram is back... thanks so much, Culwulla!

So the Makkah Royal Hotel / Abraj Al-Bait is the actually tallest rising tower at 450m, followed by Al Hamra Tower and Tokyo Skytree, that both just cracked the 400m limit. The almost neighboring Marina 101 and Princess Tower, besides Kingkey Finance Center should enter the +400m club next.

I cant view the diagram!
Cul, If you can repost the diagram from another source than flicker would be great. Because this site is blocked in UAE and I dont think we can view anything coming from it!!
