I suppose the one in Taipei is currently the world's tallest building. Right?
Which city will have the next tallest building on earth? Dubai, Seoul, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo, New York, Chicago etc they all have plans to build the world's tallest building..... But who is going to be number 1?????

My guess is Dubai. The tower that they are building there is going to be the tallest man-made structure in the world if it goes as planned, surpassing the TV tower in North Dakota that has held that record for some time. And Dubai has a history of spending lots of money on extravagant projects, so I think it will go as planned.
The other cities in the world are more held back by reality.

All is answered here (with diagram). Only the ones already constructed, or currently under construction are included. "Proposed" ones are not included because there are chances that they never materialise anyway...

QR332, don't be surprised, United Airline has very rudimentary knowledge of Middle East.
2 of the world's best airlines (QR, EK) with a very high growth are avoided from Western world. Very strange when I see how popular they are in the Western countries.
Especially when his nick translated in Arabic is the name of a new Arabic airline.
Do you want to know something about statistics - they're not always right!
Why did you start this thread - I mean you're original question asked which city will have the next tallest building. Someone gave you an answer and you shot it down in flames. What do you want us to say?
Dubai is planning the next tallest building, sure it will probably be surpassed in time but name something that isn't surpassed technologically.

Quoting United Airline (Reply 10): What about the one in Melbourne????? I know Gold Coast has the world's tallest RESIDENTIAL building. Melbourne was going to build the world's tallest building too. Do they still have plans to do so???
hmmm, it will be the world's largest apartment building for now and is called the Eureka Tower. Nothing in the league of world's tallest building however!
On that note - just what Melbourne needs... more apartments!
