Hong Kong and Macau[edit]

I notice that Hong Kong is listed as a separate country, while Macau is listed as simply in China. First off, I would suggest listing Hong Kong as a part of China, since it is not an independent state, but if not, at least make the article consistent and treat Macau the same, since they're both pretty much the same in terms of autonomy.--RM (Be my friend) 07:50, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done The flag of China in the 'Grand Lisboa' section has been replaced by the flag of Macau. Oldstone James (talk) 17:41, 16 November 2014 (UTC)
Hong Kong and Macau are both part of China, I'm not sure why it's the only country on the list to include second tier administration units. For example, should One World Trade Center be located in New York State instead of USA? Mattximus (talk) 15:57, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 18 October 2014[edit]

The 432 Park Avenue Building is not on this list, per http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/432_Park_Avenue it should be at 15th in the tallest buildings list. Jfish9 (talk) 03:23, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: My understanding (based on this, which this list is sourced from) is that buildings do not count in this list until completion, and this building will not be completed until 2015. (Note that completion means the building needs to actually be habitable, not just topped off.) It is currently listed in the Skyscrapers under construction section.

Yes check.svg Done 432 Park Avenue was topped out last week according to reliable sources such as the New York Times. As such it can be included in this list. Note that the CTBUH can sometimes be a little slow in updating its database, but that is not too much of a problem if another reliable source has the news.

Proposed merge with List of megatall skyscrapers[edit]

J No reason to have a rather arbitrary subset list that is entirely subsumed by List of tallest buildings in the world. --Animalparty-- (talk) 01:46, 16 November 2014 (UTC) --Animalparty-- (talk) 01:46, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

There is no merging to be done. The contents of List of megatall skyscrapers is wholly present in List of tallest buildings in the world. Propose instead the deletion of the megatall list. Astronaut (talk) 14:58, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

Add buildings[edit]

There are many buildings to be added: The Address Downtown Dubai (Dubai) - 302 m; Doha Media Center (Qatar) - 286 m; Lotte Center Hanoi (Vietnam) - 272 m; Bitexco Financial Tower (Vietnam) - 263 m; DBS Bank Tower, Ciputra World Jakarta (Indonesia) - 256 m; Kempinski Residences & Suites, Doha - Al Fardan Residences (Qatar) - 254 m; Pakubowono Signature (Indonesia) - 250 m; Palm Tower 1 (Qatar) - 245 m; Palm Tower 2 (Qatar) - 245 m; and I'm sure there are many more.

Milad Tower[edit]

Milad Tower in Tehran Iran is 435 meter. I think it should be in your list. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:30a:c0a2:6450:844e:ce58:be78:7a76 (talk) 04:48, 17 November 2014‎

Milad Tower is not on the list because it does not meet the criteria for this list. It is a Nonbuilding structure and fails the need to "have continuous occupiable floors", as is outlined in the lead of this article. Milad Tower is correctly listed at #6 in List of tallest towers in the world. Astronaut (talk) 12:43, 13 December 2014 (UTC)
