I find that T101, Kingkey, sears and One world TC are of the same height range and SWFC and ICC and the clock tower being of similar height as Pentonium

Ping An and ST is in a range of their own

Burj is just a massive giant above all of them, and have the taipei 101 effect above these towers.

These are in terms of their highest attainable height by humans of course, do you agree?

It seems to be totally a pencil.
I lost interest in a high-rise building.

the rest of the mecca clock towers complex aren't tall enough to be on here...it's just like saying why isn't the whole WTC complex on here. Like WTC1 only Mecca clock tower breaks 500m.

Qatar National Bank HQ no, on-hold
Lotte Town Super Tower yes
Barwa Tower no, on-hold
Petronas Towers yes, of course
Dubai Towers Doha no, on-hold
Jialing Fanying no, hasn't started yet
