Bogota has a +450m proposal, I'm surprised you didn't include it! The render is ugly, but it would be the tallest in Latin America. Here is the website. It's in spanish, I used google translate. I think you should include it in this list. Dallas also had a +300 proposal, but I don't remember the name or website.

I have no idea. I cannot find it. Someone mentioned it, they have pictures of the lot and everything. I think it's offical.

So you are saying you hate it when the height goes up?

The maps are alot work. It's a question of motivation to do that over a long time.

difficult to say what's actually going on with them. But these are no Highrises, just Towers. So i won't add them to my list so or so.

I will get round to it eventually, but I am currently busy with uni stuff, and I know that if I continue the maps, I will get behind with uni work!
Also, 400m+ map? I thought all my maps had 300m+.
...
Well after looking through my posts, I found the map you were referring to, the Google Earth map.
link
I'm not sure why I don't have a link for that in my signature (I do now). Also, that map is VERY time consuming because of all the data I have to find!
A map with all supertalls currently U/C, T/O, and COM would probably be about 1000 placemarks if I include the different stages at the appropriate times!
Of course, once I have actually completed the map, keeping it up to date will be relatively easy.
I will continue the map eventually, I will definitely have time around Easter during the first week of the uni holidays, so if I haven't done anything by the 12th of April, maybe someone could remind me?

Yes, just so many place marks but as you said, once it is done for the current year it only needs an update maybe once a year and only for that year.

What's the criteria for ground work in the U/C Supertalls listing? A lot of the New York Supertalls are in heavy groundwork like 111 West 57th and 217 West 57th but aren't listed (though being further along than Kingdom Tower which IS listed)
