NOV 1-Worlds tallest diagram update-big 5

well first of month again.the big 3 seem to rising nicely. BurjD and SWFC approaching 300m mark fast!
in recent news article it mentions burjD has reached 80th floor and 277m. i think they have that wrong. its clearly taller then that? im sticking with my calcs.
yes there are some big ones coming up but ill try to add bldgs which are 400m+ TO ROOF only.

the ICC tower has actually caught right up. only a few months ago it was 10storeys high. It took a year for foundations and lower structure to construct.
the core is rising rapidly atm and may even catch SWFC next year.

Good Job Culwulla as always.

Any ideas when Freedom Tower and Ghangzhou West will be rising?

CULWULLA,
SWFC should be a supertall (300m+) by now, 1st of November 2006.
I think it's on level 65 or 66.

Great diagram by the way. Very interesting.

Fantastic job Culwulla!!

This really puts into perspective how fast the major scrapers are coming along, and how ginormous BD will actually be.
