Greatest distance between supertalls

In your city, what is the greatest distance that exists between two supertalls (height: 300m)?

In Hong Kong, it is currently 11.64 km (7.28 miles) between the Nina Tower and Central Plaza.

By March 2008 (or earlier, seeing as it will top out before then), it will be 13.81 km (8.58 miles) between Nina Tower and One Island East.

Nice fact on HK. When I was at the peak before, You could barely see the Nina Tower from there. Well it was somewhat a cloudy day... How about the distance from the Marina to the supertalls in SZR in Dubai. They seem very far apart.

The World Trade Center and the Empire State building were about 4 miles apart.....probably the greatest distance between two supertalls in North America.....although that distance will exist again when the Freedom Tower is completed.

Anyone know the distance between Al Arab Burj and Emerates tower? Probably the distance would be a top list as well?

Itīs almost exactly 13km.

Dubai is more than 50km long and they will build supertalls in almost every neighbourhood. So Dubai will lead in this competition very soon.
