Communication tower? Look at those pictures of that Iran tower. That's a communication tower to broadcast television, radio and cellphone signals. Also functions as an observatory.

What about Wuhan International Security Building (now called Minsheng Banking Building) it is 336meters with antenna, but only 283 meters to top roof, 68 floors. Well it is still u/c, but should be done this year

Before the diagram gets too huge, we should keep the limit to 300 m, maybe even 300 m roof in a few years.

Well, many in the current diagram are not qualified to your standard, New York Times Tower is lower than Wuhan one, no matter the antenna top or roof top.

Amazing stuff here again. Also it's a great idea to have a 380m diagram aswell since now there are so many 300m towers going up. Lots of new ones too, great!!

There are also two over 300m supertalls in Nanjing city, China that are u/c, but in very few exposed here.
1) Nanjing international plaza, 320m main tower and 167m twin lower tower. the lower twin towers are almost finished working







2) Zifeng Building, u/c, the main tower will be topped by 2007, but final height (spiral) is not disclosed decisively, but at least over 400m. and roof top will over 300m. and the skirt commerce building has been topped now, and they are working for the foundation of the main tower. but no construction site photo exposed so far

It's amazing the way we keep hearing more and more about unknown towers like this. Guess there are still many more we don't know about
