That picture of the Shanghai Tower in post #139 shows how supertalls are very inefficient in terms of % of usable area vs. Floor area. The core takes up too much space to house so many elevators, ducts and services.

He counts topped out buildings towards his finished list, a lot of people do it that way, because it is far easier to decide if a building is topped out than if it is finished. Abraj al bait for example is hard to say what status it should be counted for.

Yes, first of all this thread shows the visual progress of constructions, but Abraj and 1WTC are long time topped out, and all the changes are occurring inside these towers (repair, etc), and just not interesting to see every few weeks fresh but the same pics with no visual progress, so i made the decision to create +400m BUILT Supertalls in Images thread and move them there and all upcoming T/O towers in future too.

Hi, S.K.

Sure i'll add it now, but we don't know exactly if the 412m tower is U/C (or other two this thread doesn't need, 339m each).

since you also moved it here and we changed the title to U/C i also changed the Busan Tower's status on SSP to U/C, however i still am kind of careful with my hopes, because it is a really big project and we have no idea which of the towers start first, hopefully all three will rise simultanously, but there is no being sure about that.

In this thread already few projects wich haven't risen since this thread was created, like Kingdom Tower and The Chow Tai Fook Tianjin, just added them cuz they were U/C (the same with Landmark Tower), but nothing prevents temporarily exclude them from the list until we see the progress, because the sence of this thread is to show the progress of construction.
