September 1, 2006 | World's Tallest Diagram Update

Decided to add the 104storey/432m West Tower at Guangzhou, china ,due to being well over 400m to roof.
Burj Dubai is now over 250m just short of SWFc which decided to rise after a month stagnant.The massive ICC in HK is now 500ft/150m high.
others still at foundation/drilling stage.

Just 45 more metres and Burj Dubai is a supertall! The pics don't really give an idea on how massive these are now but the diagrams do.

Also good to see the amazing ICC making some good progress now!

Yes, I think Busan Lotte should go on too, if it's possible to get enough updates. It will be the second highest roof height after Burj Dubai if I'm not mistaken.

Its unbelievable how small the other towers looks when you compare them with BD.And how small they will look compared with the BD if BD will be higher than 808m for example if it will be 900m.

that diagram worries me, looks like the freedom towers trying to make CN fall over by digging it up from underneath.

Think this takes another 5 years. If The Dubai Waterfront coming up, than I think, you are right!
