You are the moderator. So moderate. I agree we need a new category. Magatalls sounds good.

There are plenty of skyscrapers to fill this category, so there is no problem.

I see more progress cladding on the 5 th mechanical floor, near completion on the side near the intermediate crane where were external elevators and the rebbars's progress on the 2nd mechanichal floor .

Lol this is another one of alot of post from you bout getting a new category. But still it hasn't happened. I think it's a good idea, but why don't you ask the mods and the administrators (Jan). Or do you want us to sign a petition or something like that cuz asking them didn't work?

What difference does it make how the buildings are categorized? Call it a supertall, megatall, or whatever you want, it's still a huge building. Making a category for megatalls would be rather stupid because it would only have a handful of buildings in it and very few of those are under construction. Most are either on hold or proposed. Maybe in the future when we get a dozen or so buildings that would fall into that category it could make sense but right now I don't see a need for it.

How much floor space does this building contain?

And who are occupying it?

The burj looks superb from this angle and distance. Reminds me of The Never Ending Story movie.

Personally i would say,

Highrise - 100-299
Supertall - 300-599
Megatall - 600-999
Ultratall - 1000+

^yes that sounds ok but we have like 2 in megatall cat atm. will be years before we get more. maybe start with 500m+ and after a decade of recession recovery then we could up it to 600m+.
500m is good height because its metric half a km. real achievement.
we also have maybe 30 already for this cat?
anyway ive asked jan.
cheers
