i think he only added buildings that are already Complete,U/C and On hold with a set date of starting again (pentominium), there are more potential buildings that may be finished by 2020 if they start soon like signature tower, warisan merdeka, pertamina energy tower and several chinese projects. but before construction starts a lot can go wrong and delay, so he has a point in not including them, since they are wild cards.

Since we're slightly OT until we have more updates of piling, did anyone happen to catch the modeling of Zhongnan Tower at the firm's office in the Shanghai Tower's documentary recently?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKIWAv4CLtw
Skip to 4min 40sec in and you can see what appears to be semi-final or final concepts for the spire / roof area of the tower.

i am pretty sure number 1,5,6,8,10,11,12 and 20 will all not be finished by 2020, some will never be built at all and others i think will be build likely but will take a bit longer than that.

The Chicago Spire is pretty iffy. A lot of financial mountains have to be overcome.
