Well we are reviewing the next highest building in the world here. Only that is enough to make it a sticky.

More like 1000m+ because 1km is a magical mark.

*sigh*

Are we having this discussion AGAIN?!?

Stop it.

Just stop it.

It was never funny.

It still isn't.

It will never be.

I curse the CTBUH for coining the term "megatall" at all. At times, it seems like one third of this thread consists of lazy suggestions for what the next category of "tall" should be called, or where the treshold should be.

In my opinion all buildings over 100 m up to 250 m should be called "highrises", all between 250 and 500 would be "skyscrapers", 500-750 "supertalls", 750-1000 "hypertalls" and over 1000 m "megatalls" or "gigatalls"

^Not funny, not interesting, not relevant, not of any substance, not entertaining, not productive, not adding anything to the thread*, not useful, not intellectually stimulating, not necessary, not fruitful... I could go on for a while, but I think you've taken the point.

Also, it's been done to death a hundred times before already.


*except more pages

How about a system which changes exponentially as the 'talls' grow ever taller with time:

2005:

Megatall = 400m+
Supertall = 300 - 399m
Skyscraper = 200 - 299m
Highrise = 100 - 199m

2010:

Megatall = 500m+
Supertall = 400 - 499m
Skyscrapers = 300 - 399m
Highrise = 150 - 299m

2015:

Megatall = 600m+
Supertall = 500 - 599m
Skyscraper = 350 - 499m
Highrise = 200 - 349m

2020:

Hypertall = 1000m+
Megatall = 800m+
Supertall = 550 - 799m
Skyscraper = 400 - 549m
Highrise = 300 - 399m

2025:

Hypertall = 1250m+
Megatall = 1000m+
Supertall = 750 - 999m
Skyscraper = 500 - 749m
Highrise = 400 - 499m

2030:

Hypertall = 1600m+
Megatall = 1200m+
Supertall = 900 - 1199m
Skyscraper = 700 - 899m
Highrise = 400 - 699m

2050:

Ultratall = 3200m+
Hypertall = 2000m+
Megatall = 1600m+
Supertall = 1000 - 1599m
Skyscraper = 750 - 999m
Highrise = 500 - 749m

Let's roll on the future!
