What about the madison square garden towers even though its proposed it should be in the top tallest residential buildings at 427m(1400ft) or Tour de Verre 381m (1250 ft).

But its not that they are not going to get built. Tour de verre is positively most likely going to get built. The madison square garden towers vary being that it is apart of the biggest project in the nation which is the hudson yards project. It is still proposed because they are still choosing a design.

If it stays on hold any longer and the freedom tower might be the tallest building in the western hemisphere

Cul, just a few things to do.

The pentominium has gone deeper now. You can see that ground level is at the top right hand corner of the picture. Also as you can see there are three piling vehicles there now.




Also I think you can remove all the vehicles from the chicago spire.

About the Tour Verre, don't think it should be included since Princess Tower is already over 30 floors high and will be bigger anyway. Not sure about the other towers but there doesn't seem to be much news about them (or else the plans mightn't be finalised?)

By the way, surely some of the 100 Chinese supertalls must be residential.

citypolice. you missed the point of this diagram
the see thru towers are outlines of the unbuilt structure.
this diagrams main aim is to show the NEXT worlds tallest apartment not all of the new towers over 300m.
tower verre will never be the worlds talelst apartment tower, so it misses out in this diagram.
my pic is the torch will become next tallest because its smallest out of the 3 that are uc and should be opened before them. then i think princess tower will reaign for a year or 2, then pentominium.
thanks malec, ill amend soon for xmas update
cheers

How great is that billboard at the bottom of the picture with the boat?

"120 FLOORS OF ALL PENTHOUSE LIVING"

So what is the highest unit going to be called?
