I thought that the spire on the Freedom Tower was going to be included in the tally because it is going to part of the structure, no? Anyway, I can't believe how close it is to the hieght of the CN Tower. You should have included the Spire building going in Chicago. I think they approved it for construction.

That is a very good and useful chart. One item, though, where would the KVLY-TV mast fit into that diagram? Could you include it?

Thanx!

Mike

A 18m helicopter platform was added to the Guangzhou west tower recently. So I guess the total height should be 432+18=450M?

Stunning job, Culwulla!

You might want to fix the text at the top to read 350ft/100m, to save others the thrill and then disappointment I just felt.

Nice diagram but is there a reason why Lotte World Tower isn't included? It's foundations are well underway.
