2. CTF Finance Center, Guangzhou, China -- according to wikipedia - The skyscraper has a gross floor area of 5,464,633 square feet (507,681.0 m2), of which a little over twenty percent is not part of the skyscraper itself, but of the podium connected to it.


3. Taipei 101, Taipei, Taiwan -- 4,440,100 sq ft -- somewhat of a surprise. This tower gets very little publicity but it is a big boy!


4. Ping An Finance Center, Shenzhen, China -- 4,153,990 sq ft


5. Shanghai World Finance Center, Shanghai, China -- 4,107,500 sq ft


6. Shanghai Tower, Shanghai, China -- 4.09029 million ft -- a bit of a surprise. I thought it would be larger.


7. Burg Khalifa, Dubai UAE -- 3.59515 million ft -- a definite surprise here


8. One World Trade Center, New York -- 3,501,274 sq ft


9. Makkah Royal Clock Tower, Saudi Arabia -- 3,343,680 ft -- thought it would be larger. That thing looks huge!


10. Lotte World Tower - Seoul, South Korea -- 3,273,100 sq ft -- surprised this is not larger. This is another building that looks huge!


11. International Commerce Center, Hong Kong -- 2,950,000 sq ft

.
Never mind, that source I saw appears to be wrong.

The John Hancock Center and Aon Center in Chicago are both larger than that. Im sure there are at least 5-10 buildings larger than the Canadian building you mentioned.

I wasn't insinuating that it was 12th. All I wrote was that it was closer in size to the 11th place building than I expected.

I would say they got too many tacky and spiral buildings, in short nouveau riche
