i dont mean to continue a meaningless and off topic conversation, but do you even try to educate your self before you post anything?? or is this your way of getting attention? just look at the list of supertall buildings IN THE UNDER CONSTRUCTION section that are over 500m, go the PROPOSED SECTION and you will find more. having a new section keeps the forum organized and to the point this is organization 101.

Many things have changed in the last few months.

There are something like 5 or 6 towers actually under construction with 2 more which are just TV towers.
By the way I don't think federation tower should be listed as 506m, the reason being the 506m part is not actually part of the skyscraper. Did I open a can of worms?

Anyway I think there are even better reasons now for not opening a megatall section. How many of the 25 proposed will actually get built? For example everyone of the dubai ones is either on hold or cancelled except for burj dubai and pentominium.

I wonder how Dubai will look like 50 years from now, with this fast progress it should be something like Hong Kong shoud'nt it?

Are you implying that a relatively average building has a list of awards (of which I have no idea how prestigious) and the Burj Dubai has none?
