thanks guys, i find it very time consuming searching through 30 threads to see a hole or foundation, so its probably better to do bi-monthly diagrams for world and Dubai. ill stick with monthly for big 4 .
chief- the SWFC is all office tower and basically 4m floor to floor heights. as opposed to Burj Dubai which is a mixed use tower (office/resi/hotel) , it has 3.8m floors and 3.5m floors, thus the difference.
cheers

Hmmm...
The lower part is the Armani 6* Hotel.

it's taken thirty years to topple the cn towers record.the cn tower was and still the greatest construction feat of our time if it's took thirty years of building to beat it's record then just shows how ahead of it's time it was and still is i doubt whichever building breaks this record won't be the tallest in thirty years as the cn as held.still the greatest building feat ever

Thanks for your edits CULWULLA on the big 4 and also including the full heights for CN Tower and Taipei101 for comparative reasons. I'm glad Chicago's Sears Tower is still included too, once again for comparative reasons

Thanks again Cul for your great work on this and much appreciated

The developer of Chuanjiang Fanying has changed the tower's name for Jialing Fanying.It's said it would grow up to 425m,but I couldnt give credit on it.Jialing Fanying is the key tower of Chongqing Tiandi which is the official name of the whole project.

Till now the project has been under construction for 6 months.I've got some uc pix actually,but we might wait some time to see the beginning of Jialing Fanying.

There are also rumors that ST Developments started cleaning Russia Tower plots and cutting a small hill there...

CULWULLA your work is very appreciated. Thanks for the Great Job. I wonder if the existing super tall buildings; T101, CNN, Sears should be colored in. To show that they are existing Towers.

i cant believe SWFC is really huge compared to Burj Dubai. BD seems to be taller than SWFC in photos...

SWFC is mostly likely going to finish first, its going up at such a mad pace.
