There are many towers with 400m and more, but many of them are in Dubai, this will be the tallest city in the world. I like the other towers to, they look awsome and great. It's interesting to see all these amazing towers growing around the world.

The good thing is, you only have to update the Lotte World diagram once a year, and you probably don't have to change the picture much..

Thanks for the excellent Diagram. It looks like Burj Dubai will not have any occupied floors beyond the concrete section. Which will stop at around 600 meters.

If thats the case then Chicago will keep the highest occupied floor title, with the Chicago Spire being 610m to the top floor.
Doubt Emaar would let that happen though.

I find it funny how people keep assuming that the Chicago Spire somehow magically won't need any mechanical floors, and will have occupied floors to the very very top.

Totally agree.

Culwalla, why not add the Emirates Park Towers as well? And maybe the Al Burj, which is slated to top out at 1200m

Thanks for all the hard work

Of course it won't. But there is no spire, so the 610m figure will be pretty accurate to the top occupied floor, off by a couple meters most likely. But until we actually see the detailed stacking plan I don't think pulling a random number from the blue would be any more accurate. I fail to see whats funny about it. Rather odd sense of humor.

Why not? Because it's not 400 meters. If he wanted to add buildings that were close to 400m he would have more than just the Emirates Park Towers to add. And Al Burj isn't under construction to my understanding, so why would he add that to a "construction diagram"?
