I can tell you now that London is a hell of a lot more than just the 1Km square that contains SwissRe, lloyds and T42, a HELL of a lot more. If you're just looking at CBD, you can double that by adding in canary wharf, but when you through in the rest of zone 1, you'll realise London is massive, and if you take zones 2-6 into account, its one of the biggest cities in the world.

London is a hell of a lot bigger than 1 kmē...it's 1,579 kmē in fact. The City of London, on the other hand is 1 sq mile, or 2.6 kmē.

midrise? alot of skyscraper enthusiasts like to quote 500ft/150m as a real skyscraper. thats when it starts to look tall.
If you see what citys have most 150m+ skyscrapers they tend to show the real size of the city.Us in australia like to think 90m or 300ft is a skyscraper. its about 30storeys units or 25 story office.
anyway back to mighty burj Dubai!

I Personally say: 0- 150m it's a normal Highrise Building
150m-300m it's a skyscraper
300m-700m it's a Supertall
800m-1000m it's a Megatall
over 1000m it's a Skycity
