The height question is not easy. Of course it would be the easiest way to count the absolute height but antennas are not really part of the buildings. Though at some towers we don't know it without them, for example the ESB.

Yes. Not sure if they totally canceled the plans for a 1000m+ tower or not

updated all 4 lists .

i added the ADNOC HQ Tower/Abu Dhabi to the completed list since it has reached its full height, but the bridge is missing.
Abu Dhabi now has 5 Supertalls!
That makes 95 supertalls now in total.

I wonder if we will reach 100 by the end of this year.

All my exams are done now, so I will continue the maps some time soon. I am not too well at the moment, so I'm not sure when i will get round to continuing the map yet.

I believe there aren't 5 towers at the moment which are close to top out. But next year it's for sure

yes eton place topped out. it is still not finished but the highest point of the structure was reached already, the rest around it still has to keep up a bit though and then all the cladding, so still some time to be done.
