Excellent job, isaidso:

having tried to run similar "league tables" in the past, mainly in the transport forums, I know how hard it is- even in this globalized workd- to deal with varying definitions of what seem to be quite obvious measurements. And so much work!

I haven't read the whole thread yet, and no doubt someone from my piece of turf has already summed things up, but keep up the good work.

Sears Tower in Chicago, then Empire State Building in New York.
Tallest in the world? The Petronas Towers in Malaysia.

Shortest in the world? My house.

Thanks. It is a lot of work, but I think it's safe to say that we're all a little tired of inaccurate and out of date data on emporis. Between us SSCers, we should be able to come up with the best free list around.

You're right about different definitions of height, but we should end up with a fairly good and representative inventory of towers.

Hi isaidso...

The list is a little bit wrong.

Colombia doesn't have buildings over the 200m. In the list you put 2 buildings with 225m heigth and suddenly you mean to the Parque Central Complex in Caracas - Venezuela.

The list of the top 10 in Bogotá are:

1.Colpatria: 196 mts (BOG)


2.Centro Internacional: 190 mt (BOG)


3.Torre Principal Plan de Renovación Urbana: 175 m (BOG) (pro)
http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/a...9/IMG_9922.jpg

4.Ciudadela San Martin: 171 mts (BOG)


5.Torre de Avianca: 161 mts (BOG)


6.North Point III: 144 mts (BOG)


7.Edificio Fonade (La Nacional): 140 mts (BOG)


8.Contraloria General: 140 mts (BOG)


9.Edificio Colseguros: 140 mts (BOG)


10.Ciudadela San Martin 2: 123 mts (BOG)

+
11. Seguros Tequendama: 122 mts (BOG) (my favourite!)



Oldies, but tastie!!
