Great diagram.

Can I be cheeky and make a suggestion?

How about arranging the buildings from left to right according to their longitude? Obviously there would be gaps and some pretty dense areas, but I think it would make for an interesting perspective.

Great work.. but why didn't you include the Nakheel-Harbor Tower in Dubai (1000+ m)? isn't it approved?

My prayers have been heard - the diagram is back! Thanks Culwulla!

En detail, I'd see some progress for 101 Marina, which is overground for a while, with the core equalling the top of the neighbouring podiums at 20-25m on January, 13th.

At the moment I wonder about the actual height of Makkah Royal Hotel. It has overtaken the satellite towers, which partly should have topped out. But I remember figures of 260m for the two shoulders ZamZam and Hajar (e.g the English Wikipedia still uses these figures), so the Royal Hotel could have reached around 280m already. But if your assumption of only 238m for the so far tallest is true, 250m should be alright (perhaps it's the tent constructions on the roofs that make the difference).
