Well, at the start of the thread it does say "completed between 1980 and 1989". I don't think it includes towers which were completed outside that timeframe, even if the designing and groundbreaking was done in the 80s.

OUB Centre, Singapore

When I was a kid, I was so excited about its knife edge I dragged my grandmother with me to stare up at it.

Today I still like to stare up at it.
