July 1St-BIG FOUR construction diagrams

here is update on big 3 now big 4 with inclusion of the mighty Freedom Tower in NYC. i also added in current tallest (Taipei 101,cn tower and Sears tower) just for comparitive purpose.
Ive decided posting the worlds tallest diagram every month was too much work, and not much happned anyway, so ill post that one bi-monthly or every 2nd month , you will see change then, but i post the big 4 - 1st of every month!

What happened with Taipei 101?

Fantastic diagram though. Can't believe the progress of SWFC.

FT (WTC1) may not have the roof height like the others, but structurally as the 2nd tallest in the world, ill take it.

Sorry if this comes across as a noob question, but how come floor 51 of the SWFC is so much higher than the 51st floor of Burj Dubai?

Does anyone have the floor-floor heights for the buildings? Seems like an awfully big difference! I know that office floors typically have greater floor-ceiling heights to allow for cabling/ducts etc, but surely the difference wouldn't be this pronounced? Plus, isn't this range of floors on the Burj Dubai intended for office use?

Hmmm...

Really cool, but I'm sure that 1WTC has more than 82 floors.

If you mean just Burj Dubai, once a month as in the diagram above. If you mean all the tall towers for Dubai (& other countries), every 2nd month.

It's amazing that Shanghai's WFC's core is almost to the 1/2 way mark.
