Just updated the pics to the better ones, and made them all 1000 px wide.

Enjoy.

you count the spire of Jin Mao and Petronas towers but Taipe 101 is listed behind the Petronas with 448m. doesn't make sense to me. Taipe 101 should be on the 3rd place.

but the thread idea is good

Yes, really correct remark, just fixed it now (Petronas Towers and Jin Mao Tower with their +400m roof height moved to the bottom of the list).


And Taipei 101 is on the 5th place (by roof height for sure).

828m Burj Khalifa
601m Abraj Al-Bait
492m Shanghai WFC
484m Hong Kong ICC
448m Taipei 101

Yup, agree. I personally would count the spires to the height. These roof heights are quite chaotic since it's not always easy to say what the roof actually is. So to me Taipe 101 is 508m

Simply don't use roof height. Use the official height of the buildings and everything is ok.

Too easy. That's not what i wanted to create. That's contradicts my idea and my two threads.

How about including the former WTC buildings in New York as honourable mentions? They no longer exist, but they were over 400m to roof.
