I think it´s a great job what you´ve done, by the way a cut off of 350m would be nice, that way you leave at least one project from latinamerica lol.

well if u have so many job to do just dont put the buildings over 300m which ae on pilling stage /foundation stage beacause thats very slow

or u may put the cutoff as u said at 380 m (i prefer 350m) but thats up to u , u are the one who makes these awesomes diagramans to keep all the constructions progresees clear

keep working on this dude and thx

Cul, your diagrams are always wonderful to look at and it look forward to them every month.

However, I agree with Stefr and Mikering.

A spire to obtain impressive height feels like cheating to me. IMO roof height is what counts. Unfortunately this would only save you the work on something like 4 buildings.
So, not mentioning buildings that are not yet above street level would allow you to cut about 31 more buildings. With 35 less to worry about it would at least save a lot of research.

Of course it is all up to you.

height of building is measured by the architectural tip. spire is an architectural thing...

years ago i used to do all lists and diagrams by roof height, but it got very confusing after a while, didnt know where to put certain bldgs. these days 90% of skyscrapers either have spires or architectural features, so its easier to list them in spire height.I reckon some antennas should contribute to overall height. aka-Empire state. its silly when they say its 381m, when its clearly 443m.i dont look up at base of spire when i look at it, i direct eyes to highet point of structure.anway thats another "storey"
cheers

Not sure if this is accurate, but according to Wikipedia the Borj-e Milad Tower is complete, so you can remove the construction crane from its sketch.

but I think it´s important to measure the height based on the highest arquitectural design, but not to the antenna top, because in that way any building with roof height 290m for example could be even 400m with a large antenna, for me that´s ultra cheating and shouldn´t be count as real height, the same goes to the Empire State for me he is a 381m tall building no more.
