Supertalls
Discussions of projects under construction at least 300m/1,000 ft tall.
» Proposed Supertalls


Skyscrapers
Discussions of projects under construction between 200-299m/650-999ft tall.

Highrises
Discussions of projects under construction between 100-199m/300-649ft tall.

Etc.

I just hope whoever it is picks up the idea from this thread (please!) - though my word alone would hardly be able to change this!

Don't agree with this at all. the standard should stay the same. We already have the word megatall, so adding that section makes sense. Changing all definitions does however not seem to make sense.

Agree totally. We also don't change the definition of a Gigabyte just because the amount of data increases all the time

I think it's fine the way it is, but GulfArabia does have a point if you think about it. It changed before. A 100m building used to be a skyscraper.

This would require for thread names to change and so forth.

It would be easier to add Megatall above 500m and transfer all threads into it.

I only can remember 150m as definition for a skyscraper. But 200m is indeed better.
