FEB 1st-Worlds tallest construction diagram update!

well i think ive created a monster.lol
When i started drawing this up last year i had approx 30 x 300m+ projects uc around the world, now somehow grown to 60! It has taken me many hours just to update this months diagram.searching thru threads etc. doesnt help when forum is down also.also adding even more towers. if it wasnt for Dubai, there would be 20 less!
What does everyone think about having the supertall cutoff at ESB height of 380m?
i would have only 27 bldgs/towers in the diagram.

please let me know of any errors or obvious mistakes or towers left out.

recent additions
485m Mecca tower
460 Ocean Heights 2, dubai
412m marina 101,dubai
2x 395m Emirates park hotel, dubai
380m elite res,dubai
345m HHH tower, Dubai
300m Costenara centre, chile


small version

I think u could have one megatall diagram cutoff at 380m updated monthly, and one supertall cutoff at 300m updated quarterly. That way we would also establish a new expression, "megatall". Or maybe cutoff at 400m?

Super diagram. And many thanks.

I Think the only way to cut down on the numbers is to cut down on the height. So ESB could be something of 400 meters. Or 350 ??

You are the diagram master so it is up to you te decide. Allways enjoy them anyway. No matter what you do.

aking sounds like good idea. this diagram quarterly and 380m+ monthly.
plus the big 7 also every month. its easy when theres only a few bldgs to research data on but when theres 60 it becomes a headache.

great job...i like the idea to keep it at 380m or whatever height which makes it less buildings

For i didnt look at each individual building but zoom straight away to the super talls because there really is too many buildings


cheers

Great job again. And yes push up the height. The diagram is becoming to big and takes to much of your valuable time. ESB height sounds cool to me, gives the diagram some historical awareness too.

yeah, a 380m-400m cut off seems appropriate. the diagram has become too cluterd otherwise. good work all the same.

PS. just got 'the car' on DVD - wicked old skool movie!!

Amazing poster, too bad so many of them are so concentrated in Dubai. Though I always maintain, it'll be interesting to see how Dubai turns out, its efforts are unprecedented, and either it'll be an amazing success, or the biggest flop in history. I can't imagine how Dubai will look in 10 years or so.
