Dubai Airport is now the worlds largest building, followed by Bangkok's Central World Plaza. The Pentagon is now only the 7th biggest building.

Meanwhile the new Meccah tower will eclipse all of these multiple times over.

these are not imposing at all!

in fact they are quite disappointing personally.
I remember the first time that I saw them... I thought they where bigger.

there's no comparison with Bruxelles Palais de Justice or the one in Budapest...

Really big one... I post these two that are in the northern part of Prague, Bohnice, nearby where I live... They are even longer, both about 340m (probably biggest in Prague) and have 12 floors.
