Oh, I only voted for the Shanghai Tower, if I had of known that I would have voted for Pingan or 1 WTC as well, pretty sure it's too late for that. Neat to see that ST is #1 though.

Is the list at the top supossed to be in order of descending height, because the Tokyo Sky Tree is not taller than the Shanghai Tower.

Shanghai Tower
Shard
1 and 2WTC
India Tower
Burj Khalifa


All top notch quality and the best IMO of the supertalls U/C

Other notable mentions. Carnegie 36 and Federation Tower, may rank them higher in future.
