I think that's a bit of an optical illusion because the core looks wide in relation to the total width, but you have to remember that the tower itself is so wide that the space between the core and the outer wall is actually bigger than the space most slimmer towers have to offer per floor.

wuhan center is above ground aswell and i think since you count crowns it would make it into your list for sure. thanks for the update. (= can't believe these are the only chinese buildings of that size above ground, but many are about to get there soon R&F, wharf ifc, suzhou supertower and probably a few more are all already rising, but not above ground yet. and buildings like wuhan greenland center are moving fast as well, so we will see a lot more buildings in that diagram soon, if you keep it updated

The problem is that Wuhan Center does not have a drawing at SSP. This means that I have to draw it from scratch and I suck at drawing

But I'll ask arround on its thread if I can get info on the width and then I think I could come up with a simplistic drawing of it for diagram use

He should also draw Wuhan Greenland cause it is too huge to not have a drawing when it's already u/c

Kanto, I just wanted to say that I really enjoy your diagrams. I don't know how far buildings are in construction without them. Thank you.

Hey folks, may I take a bit of your time? Today a forumer noticed that the world's top diagram that I recently posted in this thread lacks the names of the people who originaly drawed the diagram's buildings on SSP. These people deserve the credit for their hard work because without them and without their talent, none of my diagrams would exist. I originaly cut most of the information below the buildings out because I wanted to include Burj Khalifa 'til the top within one screenshot. However, I should have noticed this so it was my mistake, I am responsible for it and therefore I would like to deeply apologize.

Thank you for your time
Kanto

Hey moderator, thanks for removing my post about the missing CN Tower in that diagram. I forgot that the truth always muddled the conversation on here and it's never welcomed.
