meadows will do it. there is no reason but he will do it.

i think every 300m + UC deserves its own thread.

even if there are 10 or more like in Dubai.

Don`t be so pessimistic.
Now Dubai has as many threads as Moscow, New York or Chicago.

Why should a moderator do this? We are talking about a 328m supertall here! If this doesn't qualify as something being posted in the world forums...what does???

It would be disorganized as the thread gets bigger

There should be one thread for each unique supertall

I've suggested a dubai construction thread a couple of times already, maybe you guys should do two construction threads,where one could be everything under 250m and the other everything over.

It's unfair how Dubai threads are locked. These are monumental buildings here; a city should not be discriminated against just because it has a lot of construction. If these buildings were in American or European cities, people would cry foul. What if all of London must be confined to a "London Construction Thread", for example, and even 300m+ towers cannot get their own threads?

good one.

well we limited ourselves to the supertalls UC and the real good designs like park place.

Nevertheless there are a lot more supertalls which should start construction really soon...
