Worlds tallest UC diagram - the race is on!!!

It started as a Burj Dubai update and grew into this.lol
people suggested the diagram needed a thread which can be updated 1st of every month.Being skyscraper fanatics, we are in a dramatic time in history! very exciting times ahead indeed.
ive added a 100m spire to Burj Dubai, so its now 800m. who knows final height will be?.
Ive added some well know talls for comparison purposes.
does anyone want anymore supertalls added that are uc? should the 357m Marriot in Chongquig be added? would we have montly updates?

Freedom tower is not UC so not a good idea to add it now...

Great to have this thread, a mod should make it sticky!

And yes, the problem with some towers is that there are not that many updates... I prefer not to add those in the diagram.

Awesome work Cul, I love how these new super towers completely overwhelm the Empire State Building and even Taipei 101 looks puny in comparison to the new Chinese towers in Shanghai and HK. As a suggestion I'd like to see the Sears Tower in there, probably the only existing skyscraper that looks like it could hold its own against these new towers.

Awesome, later you could add park square (correct name?), supertall in Dubai , 660m+ not yet started.

Would appreciate all additions you could make, if you have the time.

Great work, may i suggest that you can add or keep in mind the Lotte 2 Tower in Busan, South-Korea. Ground was broken on Dec. 18th 2000. Only problem is the project has not started construction, according to numerous sources. (emporis)

Height (struct.) 494 m 1,621 ft
Floors (OG) 107
Construction end 2008 (?)



Ok, it's on hold, but we will see what the future holds for this tower, and maybe we will see him back in your diagram.

And what about the Guangzhou TV & Sightseeing Tower?

Status: construction
Finished: 2007
Floors: 12
Use: observation
Antenna: 610 m
Roof: 450 m

all the people here fell in love with you culwulla
searching for a boyfriend?

anyway, great work

i think you could add 23 marina indeed or also Princess tower with over 100F, constuction will start within weeks.
but we don't have a final height yet, but should be 400+.

and btw, you should extend the metres scale on the right to 1000m ...

ok but let's not start this here again
