9/10. I like the mismatching setbacks. They caused a lot of trouble for me when I tried to draw this as a child. :lol:

Hi all.
I understand the BK thread being moved but I could barely find this thread.
The worlds tallest structure for the past decade and perhaps the next as well should be placed in a more prominent position in the forum.
I know the posts were getting few and far between when there was a thread in the megatall section but there will be none here.
I was visiting the megatall thread regularly looking for any news on what is happening as far as changes, office leasing, annex openings, and such to no avail. There seems to be little interest or tight security on media releases. This is a real shame.
I fear there will be no chance to get any info while the only thread in this forum is hiding here.
Just my 2 cents.
Cheers
Ray

This isn't the thread you're talking about. This thread has always been in this section. The thread you're looking for is in the Archives: DUBAI | Burj Khalifa (Burj Dubai) | World's Tallest Structure | 828m | 2717ft | 163 fl | Com.
