Don't you think it is time to move the Trump Tower thread away from the supertall--under construction forum. It is misleading.

I think it is a good idea to keep buildings in this forum even after they have been completed. They become like old friends - you don't want to see them go. can we bring back SWFC? Perhaps a separate section for completed

If you wanna look over those threads you can go to the 'DN Archives' section. Aren't they still working on the base of the Trump tower though?

Listen: before you make a status report like this you have to BE SURE that what you are saying is right.

z0rg masters all his own threads/China threads. I'm sure he knows when a status needs to be changed and he can do that himself.

Emporis and CTBUH are not reliable sources. I'm not suggesting that you got your information from those sources but it sure looks like it. Thanks for your understanding.

I see, thanks for correcting. I'll look into it.

Edit: It's under preparation. It's not U/C yet. Thanks for your input though.

It might change if someone could provide us some recent construction pictures.

At CTBUH we work with blueprints where possible, plus our vast network of professionals enables us to contact them directly and have them send us all the proper information. It is impossible to have the exact height of every building in the world, but I'm not sure how more accurate or more thorough then the way we do it here you want to have it.

Feel free to point out inaccurate examples here and we'll have a look at it.

I trust you Jan, the thing is that in the past we've dealt with some inaccurate heights and floor counts. I just trust the members who update projects daily and live there and when they say the height is different from the height given on either ctbuh or emporis. I get height changes etc from everyone and everywhere and sometimes I just don't know to who I have to listen anymore.

I changed the Prep/U/C policy. I just believed for a long time what other people told me but as soon as there are foundation works/piling etc it will be moved. Digging is still preparation works I assume?

please change thread title from 157 West 57th St to Carnegie 57. . carnegie 57 sounds way better than a street name.
