I don't know if you were asking about me but that means I really really like the diagram. It was done really well.

OK, I like this one, it's really detailed and it made ma laugh that you replaced the Jin Mao with that 630m high tower (where was it already? Iowa?). The Jin Mao is a beautiful tower, pleaaaase put it back in the diagram

I'm leaving the structures in the diagram as they are now. It makes sense this way. Taipei 101 has (or should that be had) the current highest occupied floor, highest roof, and has height to structural top. Sears Tower has the highest pinnacle on any building. The CN Tower is the tallest freestanding structure, and the KVLY Mast is the current tallest structure in the world. As the Burj passes these structures, I'll blacken the records that it's taking, and gray out the structures it's passing.

Its very easy to keep track of progress on construction diagrams based on that sort. Would be quite an alternative/complement to Culwullas great diagrams if you got a good hang on it .

Wow! I didn't realized that CN Tower isn't that tall at all. I was wrong about that.

Well I haven't been to Toronato before and I always thought CN Tower would be much taller than Sears Tower. Now it is seen that CN Tower isn't THAT tall just bit taller than Sears Tower. That's it.
