Nice diagram! I too am a little shocked to see the CN right next to the Sears Tower. I never thought they'd be that close, but after seeing this and reviewing the height of Sears, it makes perfect sense that they are close. The key is including the Sears Tower's masts.

Can't wait to follow the progress!

Hmmm nothing much has changed on it.

29 Meters to go for BD to surpas the T101. Those Taiwanese will erupt into tears hearing that BD is the new champion

Cheers

Is that because of the humidity in the air?

I like this diagram for his simplicity. I reedit this to identify the milestones... But, I'm not sure where is exactly the highest occupied floor and roof for both TP101 and BD. Anyway, it will be higher than the actual tallest structure!

It's because of your air conditoning it fogs up. (condensation)
Here is what you can do.
Put the camera in an airtight plastic bag.
Leave it sit outside on the balcony to warm up. ( not in the sun )
Maybe 30 minutes.
Then remove the plastic and it won't fog up.
I have the reverse problem in Canada when we take it from cold outside to warm inside.

The other possible solution is to set up a mirror on the balcony so you can get the right angle and still shoot from inside. Turn off inside lights to avoid reflection on window glass.
Secure it so wind wont send a flying mirror in the air! ouch.

Cheers
8 floors : less than 8 weeks before BD is the highest tower

Why do all the articles keep saying that BD will surpass Taipei 101 in September? Seems it'll be much earlier than that.

5th mechanical floors are before burj dubai suprasses taipei101 and they'll take alot of time to complete

Edit: I counted that 4th mechanical floors took 40 days to complete (Jan 30th - March 12th) so it should be around 40days+5x3days = 55 days (Aug 5th) until burj dubai passes taipei101.
