feb 1-Worlds tallest construction- diagrams & photos

hi guys, ive been on holidays and fairly busy. managed to churn out the latest diagram. it was so good opening threads after 2 months. so much progress on many pprojects!

The tv tower in Guangzhou was greatest progress with approx 100m added to height
also West pearl tower
the mighty BurjD has now reached over 600m.
others towers seem to have been concentrating on cladding ect.
let me know if i need to add anymore projects (400m+) which have commenced construction.

The tallest structure I have seen in person is the Sears Tower and I could barely believe my eyes.

Now Sears Tower looks so small compared to this new breed of supertalls...I can't imagine what it'd like to see them all in person once they're finished.

How lucky we skyscraperfans are
