BIG 7 DIAGRAM-construction update jan 19

had some time to update.
ive added the enormous Russia Tower and Abraj Al-bait tower in mecca.
still unsure of its status. ive left off the 2 x240m winged towers that are only joined by bridges.
The diagram on skyscraperpage is too wide. from latest render the main tower is approx 82m wide not 100m as shown on ssp.ive worked out some heights- main tower is 330m high with main roof at 360m. base of spire diamond structure is approx 376m.what is that glass diamond straucture anyway? some sort of ob pod?

I love these updates CULWULLA. I actually look forward to them. They are an unexpected pleasure every time I see one.

Here's a thought. Would it be easier to just build a diagram with an outline of the finished building and then cut&paste the lastest picture of the building under construction. The result wouldn't be as clean or perfectly up-to-date, but might save you some time.

The problem with that might be that you will not always get photo updates from the same angle, and second, you could not easily compare different buildings under construction.

Humans are building many extremely huge buildings at the moment. It's only a matter of time before we see the first 1 km verttical cities to be constructed I think... This can be just the beginning!

IF Russia tower was a full pyramid shape it would be taller than Burj Dubai

@megatower Gherkin007 is right.

yeah but that's messes up the hole design, and it would be something similar to the millenium tower
