Princess Tower will likely top out before Abraj Al-Bait because it has less left to go. At least that's what I'd wager.

Good work. This seems to be the Asian/Middle Eastern century of skyscrapers/towers.

I also ask you to keep calling it "Sears Tower." Thank you!

By the way, as I am typing this I am looking out my apartment window at the Sears Tower in the distance.

+ one from Europe (hope they finish Federation Tower in 3 years )

I don't hold my breath that they will finish WTC1 & WTC2 in 3 years.

Pentominium, Burj Al Alam and Lighthouse Tower don't think they will be finished in 3 years, same thing with Shanghai Tower, China 117 Tower and Pingan IFC.
