World's NEXT Tallest Residential Tower - the race is on!

ive been compiling info/data for a diagram on the progression of the worlds tallest apartment tower from 1920;s until present.
This diagram is just a start.
Looks like the 2 towers in Dubai are neck and neck atm.(70m)
-being 23marina and princess tower.
Of course the 610m Chicago SPIRE will take over both but ill add that when its starts taking shape next year.
The 2 Dubai towers have different construction technique.
23marina has the whole floor /core slip form raise ,while princess tower has a central core with separate floor plates.

CURRENT tallest in world is Australias 322.5m Q1 Tower .while tallest to roof is melbournes 297m /91st Eureka.



while tallest to roof is melbournes 297m /91st Eureka.

Maybe you'll have to add another one in a few months: Chongqing Century Star Plaza.

This project will be composed of 7 towers. The tallest tower is supposed to be 428m, 96 floors, only offices and hotel.

The other 6 towers are between 60 and 85 floors, being 1-3 of them above 300m, and the tallest one as high as 400m, some rumours claim. And no spires!! These 6 towers will be for residential use only. No clear details about the heights by the moment, and even the number of floors is provisional. However, the second tallest tower of this mega project might be used as a hotel only, I'm not sure. Hope we can get details soon, this project is a huge enigma.

I don't think those skyscrapers in Chongqing will get built finally. They proposed lots of skycrapers in Chongqing, but none get built.

If Q1 is "TALLER" than Eureka, then CN Tower is TALLLER than Taipei 101, no?

If I am 5'8" and stand next to a guy who is 5'10" and put a pencil on top of my head, am I TALLER than him?

How do these rules work?

mate you are opeing a can of worms here, Spiures count but antenas dont so Pertonas and T101 are taller that Sears based on this logic but highest ocupyable floor is Sears.

Thats why they created 4 catagories for measuring height and the first one is to top of spire (as used by Guiness book of records)

Cul, the 345 meters tall The Torch, has been growing steady by 1 floor week for the last 3 weeks and their podium floors are already completed so there's nothing left on the bottom.

Also at least 3 of the podium floors of the Princess Tower are partially completed as well

No, Taipei 101 has the highest occupiable floor. It hold 3 of the 4 records, beaten only by Sears' pinnacle.

Anyway, this race is looking exciting, well as exciting as slow construction can be.

spires ( like the one on Q1 ) count to the structural height, but not antennas ( like the one on Sears tower...the reason why it isn't taller than Taipe 101 ).

if spire or feature on roof is intricate to design, then its counted in overall height.
Yes, there are categories for worlds tallest buildings, but not sure if there is for apartment towers yet? thus far, its top of structural top.
Ive found avergae floor for apartments are about 3meters. but seems in Dubai there are more generous with 3.6 up to 4m.
Alrind-ive added in Torch, i didnt realise it was that far along? be intresting to see what happens in the race. ill have to update every month.
ive also thrown in Eureka in melbourne as they say its the worlds tallest apartments because it has most floors and highest roof ect.

PANAMA BEATING AUSTRALIA

Dear Culwulla:

For you and all forum, you are leaving out Panama, in Central America, where one of the tallest residential buildings is under construction by spanish group Mall. See link http://www.farosdepanama.com/indexEN.html

Also you can check the advances on the project on this pictures

This is not the only residential tower being built in Panama. There are also other projects such as Trump Oceans Tower with 293 mts, and the Megapolis second tower also both under construction with one of the towers surpassing the 350 mts.

MEGAPOLIS

hold on a sec.
i know there is about 20 x 300m+ apartment towers currently uc around the world.
This diagram/thread is about the NEXT tallest which overtakes CURRENT tallest. A chronological study.
Also they have to be PURE-RESIDENTIAL, no hotel or office, mixed use ect.

The panama bldgs seem to be very early excavation stage, so none of them will ever be worlds tallest.

so they have to be very advanced to make diagram and taller then Q1. ect

sorry for confusion
