^Because all the other cities building 600+ meter buildings are developing and trying to show that they're relevant. NY doesn't need that to know that it's relevant.

culwulla makes only skyscrapers that are under construction into a diagram normally, so in a few months it will start he will make one with cranes etc i guess, but go to the jeddah tower thread and search a bit and you will see he made for that thread one comparison already.

Lol, jealous? You wouldn't say that if there would be something like that in NY. and sinds when are Tokyo or Seoul a developing cities?

And the diagram is great But didn't you forgot Lotte Tower in Busan? It's like 511m.

No I'm not jealous. The difference between Tokyo building a 600m tower and a random Chinese city (ie, not Shanghai/Hong Kong/etc.) or say Dubai building a 600m building because well first off, Tokyo Sky Tree isn't even a skyscraper. It's a Communications tower built because Tokyo Tower is too short to work anymore and doesn't need to be leased or maintained to the same extent actual skyscrapers need to.

Burj Khalfa though, 2 years later is still something like 50%+ vacant. It all comes down to need and space. Does Dubai REALLY need to build tens and twenties of supertalls? Of course not. Did Tokyo need to build a 600m communications/TV/broadcast tower? Yes.

And you're right. If New York built a 2000 footer, I probably wouldn't mind it. But because NYC and Hong Kong are basically the ONLY cities in the world that build supertalls because they actually NEED them. That's how big they are (and the fact that they're islands probably helps too but that's another story).

You are just brilliant Cul, nice detailed diagram. The Kingdom tower looks huge but could have been taller.

I hope people read my signature that I posted the same since 4 years now, and start to think deeply about what is going on in the world.....
I mean if you asked any person in the world 1000 or 100 or 30 or even 10 years ago that were would be the next tallest 3 buildings in the world, I guarantee no one would guess any of the Arab gulf countries The shipards who live in wool tents and ride camels in the middle of the desert, not even arab people themselves!! The freaky part is, no any proposal for taller buildings in other parts of the world now!
I am afraid the message is becoming a real thing for everyone.....No more facts than what we see now in this Diagram!!
yeah, I am scared too, I mean dont forget that next year is 2012 and we heard so much stories there too!!
For me, I am gonna go pray for the one God who sent us this message through his messengers. I dont know about the rest...but I wish good luck to everyone because according to the prophecy now, we are reaching the ultimate end of everything!
Sorry for being creepy!!
