So a stick is in as long as it's not a stick with a radio or tv receiver in it or on the end of it, and if it is, then it's not a stick and it doesn't count?

Surely the highest floor on a building where you can work/sleep/eat/whatever would be an easier universally agreed measure?

I recall the mother of all PR battles erupting here in Australia when Q1 claimed it was the "tallest apartment tower in the world" and then the Eureka people said "yes, that would be true if people could live and sleep on top of the stick".

Then there was talk Eureka would add its own stick but that wouldn't count because it wasn't part of the "original design"!

Talk abour making it confusing!

Richard Tallest will be Pentominium at 516m and its approved and in prep stage, wont top out before these 3 but will be taller eventually and will be U/C at some point whilst the others are also U/C.
Should be added

^yes i was thinking of adding Pentominium but chicagos spire is actually more advanced with deep piling. I dont think pentomium is piliing yet? i know its excavation stage.
i might add it to see outcome?
once Chicagos spire gets above grd it will take off with ist spiralling construction.
The 3 in dubai will be completed next year so they are a definate.
taking bets for which one is completed first?
such amazing times in skyscraper era.

No point adding any more tower. It'll be a year and a half at least before the pentominium is at the same stage

But The Torch can be added.

You can see from this picture from today, how The Torch (foreground) is neck-in-neck with the Princess (background)

yes, the 3 towers i have there are all potentially worlds next tallest apartment tower. this is what thread is about.
It will be really interesting to see them rises up at differing speeds.

All will be dwarfed by 610m Chicago spire in 2011 by 200m. Chicago Spire is the "burj Dubai" of apartment towers. really will set a new benchmark for great height for unit blocks. maybe a while before we get an 'all apartment" tower higher then 2000ft?

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.

This is probably in the wrong thread but since the topic was brought up here, based on your description I'm not really sure that Freedom Tower should be considered 1776' tall. In the original design the spire was integral into the design, in the present design the "Spire" is nothing more than a fancy antenna and in actuality is just stuck on top of the building. The building really loses nothing if it is not built.

If we are talking about residential towers, than The Pentominium should be the highest. When completed it stand at the same height as taipei101.

How do these rules work?
To continue the analogy properly, you would be the tallest to top of pencil category, whereas he would win the tallest to hairline category.

There are at least four categories for tall buildings, Burj Dubai will make things easy by winning all of them. But saying something is cheating makes no sense at all, It isn't cheating to make a building have a pointy top rather than a flat one, it might just miss out in some of the categories.

If i was on stilts and holding on to a lampost to stay upright, i would be the tallest non freestanding out of the lot of us!

Chicago Spire is at ground work at the moment (sub-structural work), if that is what you were asking.
