The BIG 3- Burj Dubai,SWFC,Union Sq-diagram update

Well, these 3 super scrapers seem to be creating the most interest atm probably due to being by far the tallest and most impressive skyscrapers UC atm on planet Earth. So i thought i would dedicate a diagram just to concentrate on there status.
Ive drawn up Burj Dubai as 800m. Who knows what ultimate height will be? latest reprts suggests 800m. After scrutinzing all of renders and diagrams, i feel the bulk of bldg seems to be about 525m high or 130storeys. Ive added a further 30 floors to take it to 640m and then spire/architectural feature up to 800m.
Its current height is about 100m or 24 floors.
The SWFC in Shanghai seems to be winning the race atm being nearly 400m/120m high.
The massive Union Square in HK is slowly rising being approx 50m high or 7 storeys atm.(if anyone thinks they know more accurate height please let me know).

IFC was on hold for many time, and SWFC was on hold for ages! They would be much more taller is the works weren't stoped ( Project for SWFC was from 1999 or 1997? Because it could be finished by today )

Is there a reason why the US7 is taking so long?
I remember a year ago looking at pictures here of the excavation works, of a big hole, but I can't believe the tower has advanced only 7 levels from then to now.
Or maybe I missed something in the process?

How long shall it take untill the Burj will overtake SWFC?

I guess, it will be within3 or 4 months.

What makes you think that it will happen before SWFC is topped out?
The core of SWFC is probably less big than BD's. The rest is basically a stack of beams.

Great job as usual. Man SWFC is sooooo fast. It'll be done before we know it. It'll be really interesting how they construct the hole

it's ICC not IFC.. IFC is built and across the harbor...

and thx for doing this... this is what i've been asking for all along: a simpler diagram with only the important/tallest ones... not the crazy one bogged down by all those Dubai towers...
