Both Petronas Towers should be placed down several notches, b/c neither of them would be bigger than the Sears Tower if not for the spires.

Shut up! Building are counted to their stuctural height as a general standard. Get over the fact that Sears is no long the tallest building in the world for godsake.

And why should they only adjust the petronas tower...loads of those buildings have Spires etc....Maybe you can make a list of all the buildings with a roof height over 200metres if you want it done like that.
Anyway....
Thanks for the list, I get the feeling it will look very different in a few years though. There are currently 29 1000ft+ towers in the world, but I can think of about 10 that are U/C or approved without even really thinking about it.

However, most people will say it was the Tapie 101 that surpassed the Sears Tower, not the Petronas Towers. I do agree that all skyscrapers that didn't surpass the previous contender by rooftoop height should be moved down, so I am not just talking about the Petronas Towers. Go to Evolution of Skyscraper and you will see that except for the Petronas Towers, the other WTBs did have a bigger rooftop. Even on the World's 10 Tallest Buildings it shows the same thing. I usually base my information on which is tallest by diagrams so that information I state wasn't something I came up with arbitrarily.

I understand why Chicago forumers or Sears Tower lovers would be ticked off about Petronas winning by only a ball and spire but it seems dumb though, if they wanted to hold the title without any dispute why not just raise the roof height a few feet higher??

But the main reason that I accept Petronas for being taller than Sears is the fact that there's 2 towers. Weird but that's just me.

It's not on Emporis, but is on SSP (here). There used to be a ROT thread on here but it's been deleted for some reason. There were some good photos on it too but can't find them now.

Anyway....
Thanks for the list, I get the feeling it will look very different in a few years though. There are currently 29 1000ft+ towers in the world, but I can think of about 10 that are U/C or approved without even really thinking about it.

Well said!!!! They can't get over it even after such a long time!

I think it's pretty great that London is at 150 now, but in 6 years time it could have 2 spaces in the no. 30s

Chicago has 12% of the world's 50 tallest buildings, and 10% of the world's tallest 100. That's not bad for one city.

New York, by comparison, has 8% of the top 50 and 7% of the top 100.

Hong Kong has 10% of the top 50 and 10% of the top 100.

Then again, looking at it as a percentage of total skyscrapers (if you're defining skyscrapers as over 200m):

Chicago: 5%
New York: 12%
Hong Kong: 11%

Chicago's strength is height, not numbers.
