Well, actually most european cities will have at least one church or cathedral in the top 10 or higher.

Examples of cities with more than 1 million inhabitants:

Milan
(Cathedral on 4)
Hamburg (Churches on Top 5!)
Cologne (Cathedral on 1)
Munich (Churches on 7-12)
Barcelona (Cathedral on 8 and Sagrada Familia would be 7 but is still listed u/c)
Paris without La Defense, which is acutally in the suburbs of Paris (Cathedral on 7)

When I posted the Top 10 of Cologne earlier in this thread I excluded the famous cathedral, which would be at #2 with 157m!

"Europaturm" is a telecommunications tower, thus a structure and not a building? Am I right?

I've been away for 4 weeks and am checking to see if I need to update the lists. Is this a new tower that has just topped out? Do I need to bump Jakarta from 12 to 13 buildings over 200 m?

Little update for all. Not sure how accurate this is as I tend to confuse myself due to what feels like heights changing daily -- so bear with me.

Proposed & U/C (doesn't include ALL proposals, just ones which are likely to be approved)

The Gold Coast:
- 1 (243m) - U/C
Brisbane:
- 3 (243m/236m - U/C) (255m - on hold)
Sydney:
- 5 (205m/213m/200m/200m/200m) - Prop
Melbourne:
- 7 (204m/281m/226m/217m/220m/225m/220m) - Prop
Perth:
- 1 (244m) - U/C

17 (u/c & prop) + 23 = 40

Someone tell me if I've screwed this up somewhere.
