Well, I included built tall buildings in my diagram for comparison so that folks get a better overview about the relative heights of buildings under construction, but I think it is a good idea to make a diagram with an overview of all 400m+ buildings currently u/c regardless of whether they have reached ground level or not. Right now it is too late over here but tomorrow I will do this diagram

No, you shouldn't to do a new diagram, and i like your idea with comparing too, but may be u'll add all 10 U/C visible (above the ground) towers? You diagram contains only 7.
So we could use the same diagram in the boths threads (400m+ U/C and 400+ BUILT).

Or may be he is right and better to do two separate diagrams?....

If that's your criteria shoot for Albuquerque or Las Vegas or Tucson instead. Phoenix is a giant village. Little culture, arts, or identity. Los Angeles and San Diego are also usually warm but with a nice breeze.

Great thread. The height of the roof is a very useful addition since the in my opinion stupid ruling of the CTBUH on the "official height" of the WTC1 tower in NYC.

It is 568 meters to the roof according to the drawing on SSP and the info from CTBUH

Btw, Jewish, what are the three 400m+ towers above ground level that I have missed? Let me know and I'll include them in my diagram

Everybody want see (me too) the buildings with honest 400m, and not 350m buildings with 100m antenna/spire, it's really stupid, antenna/spire is not building, it's just soulless steel stick.

^ I see what you mean, but it would still be nice to see, say Ping'An's heigh in both pinnacle and roof height. That way this thread will be non-partisan.
