JAN1 2006 update, Worlds tallest construction diagram

well finally got around to update latest diagram.were i live in Australia Umina-Central Coast) we have just had hottest day in 65 years (45deg) and with extreme windy conditions , a large bushfire threatened the area where i live.
so after a night of fighting the firestorm, the fires are now out. amazing experience.anyway

Because ive lowered height to 300m, ive had to add many more skyscrapers.what an era we live in atm with many 300m+ skyscrapers going up eevrywhere! might have to up it to 350m+.

bldgs ive added to this 2006 diagram>
Ahmed Abdul Rahim attar hotel,Dubai-301m
Ocean heights,Dubai-310m
Comcast centre, philadelphia-297m
west tower,Ghangzou-432m
Chuangjing Fanying,Chongquing-398m
marriot,chongquing-377m
plot 12, moscow-305m
city hall ,moscow-307m
WTC, Beijing-330m
a fair few of the towers i didnt see any updates for, so ive left until updated. but main big ones are getting alot of coverage so its made things easier.
SWFC seems to be the fastest growing supertall atm at 96m, while BD is at 80m.Hong Kongs IFC has been slow but is starting to take off.

Excellent update!

great!

Haha, great work.
Love the way we now a times treat buildings of less than 300m – with a great deal of arrogance:
”might have to up it to 350m+.” Great stuff.
Kinda shows the wunderfull insanity of the current skyscraper era...

great work and good additions dennis.

of course BD in the middle

The diagram is great, but I would remove NYTimes Tower from that list, its spire is a huge cheat.
PD: What happens to King Kong?

Singapore's 245m apartments Sail is well under way, but foundations works can be quite long.

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=174108

Want to add to the list?
