Wow a lot is going up. In a few months, WTC Tower 3 (3WTC) can be added to the diagram because there's a high chance that the redesign will make it taller than WTC Tower 2, which is well over 400 meters tall.

I enjoy this diagram immensely. It's like opening up a present you weren't expecting.

Can u upload it in biggest version? I can't see some figures (height)

PS. The Federation tower's spire construction progress is higher than on your diagram (it's on 11th lvl). It should be like here:

yes, SWFC just became the 9th completed skyscraper over 400m.
its taken years to achieve each one but now we have another 25 uc that will be over 400m within 2 years.just imagine in next 10 years.
i did start this diagram at 300m last year but when it got to 80 it was too much.
the world is exploding atm with skyscrapers!
