The Mumbai tower that is on hold is the 720m India Tower, not the 442m World One.

I think the pentimonium is dead and gone at this point, it was a cool looking building so kind of a shame.

Culwulla, small correction. World One will be completed in 2015 since they are building a floor a week, according to the Indian forums.

So there is the a chance that 432 Ave will become the tallest before World One claims that throne.

The question on everyone's mind is: How soon can 432 Park Avenue be built?
The race is on!

While that's certainly big, it's 577 feet (pretty tall indeed) will be surpassed.

The Building on Kotelnicheskaya Embankment with its 176 m surpassed the Drake tower in 1952, so it was the highest residential building in the world(so it shoud be added to your diagram), but then, in the 1964 Marina City surpassed BKE.
