I am wondering about two things now that we are at the end of 2007: What is the new ranking for the tallest "built" towers in the world for 2007?(I dont know if changes happened from last year!)
What about the expected list of built tallest towers for the end 2008( is there many others gonna finish other than BD?)

It looks very nice the diagrama. It's amazing how this year have pass and watch how all these wonderful constructions have advanced and how new ones have started to be build. I hope 2008 will have lots of surprises for us.

I think for the top 10 world taller towers 2007 is not changed much. We are only adding the SWTC tower with 492m and it goes 2nd after Taipi 101. What about 2008? I dont see any tower reaching the T/O in 2008, is there any for the top 10?

Petronas towers are too short for built towers.
