I believe it would be better to show the West tower of Federation since it's an unbroken complex, similar to Mecca tower.

Apparently there are a few measures of what "largest" means.

The Pentagon is the world's largest office building by floor area. (6+ Million sq ft)

Aalsmeer Flower Auction in the Netherlands is recognized by the Guinness book of World Records as the largest Commercial building. (10+ Million sq ft)

Hong Kong's Kwai Chung Container Terminal Freight Station is the largest multistory building in the world by Floor area. (9+ Million sq ft)

The Great Wall of China, after so many years, still holds the record of the biggest structure in the world. (400+ Million sq ft)

There are also many other categories.

If all goes well, though, i'm betting something in Dubai will break it soon

Yes, Boeing's factory is also the largest, in another category. Namely, it is the largest building in the world by volume, also recognized by Guinness.

Wow - looks great! I hadn't realized that SWFC was so close to topping out. Awesome. And the Burj Dubai is now almost level to the top of the CN. Amazing. Thanks again.
