Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan are not East Slavic states

East Slavic states are Russia, Belarus' and Ukraine. It's called Vseya Rus' (All Rus'). Usually translates on west as All Russia.

@ZZ-II
For Russia you have missed about 10 supertalls.
1. Still no confimation on central (fifth core) on **** Hall. Therefore consiider it as 4 buildings. (u/c)
2. Golden Age, Moscow (306, approved. developer claim they are working on it already)
3. Three ********* of info **** project. approved.
4. One approved ********* in Saint Petersburg. Part of The Baltic Pearl project. Also ********* in The Waterfront project. Proposed or approved state (no much info yet).

there was several more visions in moscow. no much info on them, however.

hi Guys,

- You all seem to be above amateurs in expertise about high rises and I am having an argument with a guy on liberty Forum who, to my surprise, is claiming that the WTC towers in NY (those turned to dust ) had a CONCRETE center core.........- His argument is that without the rigidness of CONCRETE it would be impossible to build a tower like THAT......... - His 'demand' - Show ME some other high rises that are built exclusively as a STEEL structure , - I. e. -without CONCRETE CENTER CORE !
- Still few years ago I could go on the web and find the info how exactly the towers were built.......... - It's not the case anymore.......

Im almost certain your mate is wrong, the WTC towers had a Steel core as at the time they were built this was a much more economical material. Im sure someone on here will be able to advise you about the rigidity and strength of steel vs. concrete.

However I think you would have better luck with a response posting this in the 'Citytalk and Urban Issues' Section...

Hi

Wow, great list. Besides, points very well what is at the moment for a construction boom, especially with the skyscrapers. With ends of the last year just 35 buildings with more than 300 m finished protect. Only now 59 are under construction. The old world of the skyscrapers any more is not to be recognised.

Some have gone off to me in the list whom also most are of it only visions:

Approved:
The Pentominium: 516 m - Dubai

Visions:
X-Seed 4000: 4000 m - Tokyo
TRY-2004: 2004 m - Tokyo
Aeropolis in 2001: In 2001 - Tokyo
Bionic Tower: 1128 m - Hong Kong
