The list will exceed 200 starting January 1, 2013 when I add newly completed buildings such as The Pinnacle, Pearl River Tower, Al Yaqoub Tower, Emirates Park Tower 1, and Emirates Park Tower 2. I made a list of at least 40 towers that are 800 feet or higher to roof height which will most likely be complete within the next year. So this list will undoubtedly exceed 250 towers sometime in 2014.

Now the list is fully updated and there are 202 total buildings in the world with a roof height of 800 feet or higher.

Yet only 49 buildings have a roof height of 1,000 or more feet currently. So in my book there are only 49 completed supertalls on Earth but by the 984 foot designation there are 56 supertalls. Also there are 91 buildings 900 feet or higher out of the 202 over 800 feet.

Excuse me, I think you may have some error,this is what I think:

Royal Mecca Hotel Clock Tower 601m(1970 feet) because I think that at the top of buildings has not really a spire

Jin Mao Tower; I rather think his roof height is 397m(1301 feet),
http://skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/?buildingID=9

and Emirates Park Tower twin 342m(1121 feet)
http://skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/?...4959&offset=25

Keangnam Hanoi Landmark Tower 336m(1101 feet), because originally it was planned 330m roof height, but in 2011 is topped out at 336m roof height

Royal Mecca Hotel Clock Tower I think will always have a controversial roof height because it seems to be able to be marked at several different heights.

Jin Mao Tower on SSP has a spire height of 420.5 meters but on the diagram the spire doesn't reach that height so therefore the roof height is also off.

For the Emirates Park Towers the SSP diagram roof height is still the same as the 1,090 feet I determined. The part you included is too much a part of the spire to me.

And for the Keangnam Hanoi Landmark Tower, I trust the SSP diagrams more than wikipedia. I compare SSP and wikipedia both but the heights on wikipedia are sometimes way off.

Are there any discussions how many the tallest buildings there are in specific countries, i.e. making rankings of countries, density of such buildings, etc. The tourists would be happy
