i see that you do not include buildings that we do not have threads of, if that wasn't intended you may want to include Abraj Al Bait and maybe topped out buildings like 1WTC?

Yes, i also have thinking about to move here all completed +400m towers, despite the fact that they still are in Supertall U/C forum... mmm okay, i'll move them now.

And yes, i'll give SSC thread links to all the towers, but i don't know what to do with the towers, wich have alot of topics, like Burj Khalifa, it has at least 27 parts of thread....

The CTBUH ruled a few weeks back that the "antenna" met the standards of a spire, so the definitive height is now 1,776ft per the definitive body in charge of measuring buildings

BTW, should the Empire State Building and John Hancock Center be in this list?

SSP says they have antenna, but for me there is no difference (visual) between the antenna and the spire...

I agree that there is no difference between an antenna and an spire so I'd say, either include both spire buildings and antenna buildings, or include none

I think either make it height to roof OR make it official architectural height (CTBUH Height). I think if you are being antenna inclusive it's just opening a can of worms to be honest.
