So its like being unable to determine for yourself that a building however incomplete at 141 floors, 512.1 m tall is not the tallest building. Pity you need someone to tell you that

um. i was wondering, why didn't they start the cladding earlier?
I looked at SWFC its cladding started as soon as the building started construction.

Personaly, I have never considered Taipei 101 to be the WTB. Its top part is just a fake to beat the Sears.

Well guys, you can change the title of this thread now - no more "future" necessary, as it "IS" the world's tallest now.

Taipei 101 has a higher roof height than Sears. The only thing taller on Sears is it's antenna.

No it's not. It isn't classed as a building until completion, in order to avoid something similar to what happened with that North Korean hotel that now stands as a 300m tall unfinished shell.

Fantastic pics AltinD - it already looks like a world class skyline and there are still 30+ supertalls yet to be built.

The times are approximate for 18th and 19th. Imre, if you have them...

Given that 7/18th update is in the morning, and that from the shadows, 7/19 seems in the same hours than 7/16-7/17, we can count 7/17->7/19 at a rate of 82 panels in 2 days, or 41 panels a day. Or maybe 40 and 42 respectively.

That would make 38, then 40, then 42 panels... A slowly growing rate.

Vincent.
So whats that, another 10000 or so panels to go.

It's HUMIDITY. It took more then 10 minutes for the fog on the lens to dissappear.
