I think leave in the busan lotte tower since something is going on with the big tower anyway. Check here: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...248313&page=28

Unfortunately I don't think anything is happening with the barwa tower so maybe take that away. Maybe ask someone from Qatar.

For Dubai the ones you should leave in (or add if not there already) are:
Burj Dubai
Pentominium (stuff is still happening on site, main contractor is apparantly (unofficially) ACC but they're not there yet. There is still deep excavation going on.
Burj al Alam (lots of piling activity recently)
Bin Manana Towers (piling in progress)
Princess Tower (you know yourself)
Marina 101 (same here)
Marina 106 (ground work, I don't know what, still going on but slowly)

You can scrap Dynamic Tower, Russia Tower and the Chicago Spire for the time being, I think. Also, that Oriental Pearl Tower diagram looks horrible. :P

Oh, and since you have the tallest mast on the diagram, how about adding this monster just for fun?

so ive deleted any bldg uc. only existing and topped out bldgs/towers over 400m.
checkout how burj dubai dominates
only 20structures (not inc masts)
14 skyscrapers, 6 towers
in just 2-3 years another 20 skyscrapers will be added!

I still think you should add GRES-2, it's the world's only chimney above 400m.

One little detail: Sears Tower should be changed to Willis tower. and also Empire State Building looks a little bit weird, has the wrong colour. It looks like you didn't draw it yourself, it has a very different style, and it's also 3d while your other towers are 2d.

Cullwulla, the Sears Tower has now a new owner and the owner renamed the tower into "Willi's Tower"!

So, what do you think will make that diagram next? I'm guessing it's Al Hamra Tower in Kuwait, followed by the Princess Tower in Dubai and then the Tokyo Sky Tree.

Also, f... orget the name "Willis Tower". It's called "Sears Tower", case closed! :P

EDIT: Forgot about the clock tower in Mecca, will probably top out before the Sky Tree.
