Canadian Tire Warehouse in Bolton, ON[edit]

A 1.6 million square foot warehouse is almost done in Bolton, ON (outside of Toronto). Should it be added to the list?

http://www.caledonenterprise.com/news-story/4730527-interactive-20-facts-about-the-canadian-tire-development/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by 141.117.116.36 (talk) 19:09, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Why are we using idiotically nebulous terms like 'largest' instead of[edit]

more descriptive terms like Most Voluminous. "largest" would be okay in the simple english wiki but not this one

206.193.249.64 (talk) 12:34, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

Because the article (as it currently stands) actually gives three separate lists, only one of which has anything to do with volume. For that reason, I'm taking the terms "this list" and "most voluminous" out of the title paragraph that refers to the article body as a whole, including all three lists.

Chengdu Global Center, World's largest building by floor area not yet included[edit]

http://www.reddit.com/r/ArchitecturePorn/comments/1eyxzw/worlds_largest_building_chengdu_global_center/

Somebody needs to add this to the top of the lists, as it is largely complete. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 101.161.182.117 (talk) 01:51, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

Was wondering why New South China mall was excluded with a total of 892,000 square meters. Is it just because it's tragically empty and a massive boondoggle? --72.207.121.2 (talk) 23:34, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Buildings 9001 & 3001 at Tinker AFB[edit]

It would appear that two buildings on Tinker AFB qualify for inclusion in this list, Building 9001 at 330,000 m2 (though this may be the combined size of the old assembly building and the adjoining paint facility) and Building 3001 at 120,000 m2. Building 9001 is the former General Motors Oklahoma City Assembly plant so I would assume that many other auto plants would also qualify for inclusion. Willow Run comes immediately to mind but I don't know how much of the old plant still exists. --SEWalk (talk) 05:02, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

Hong Kong Container Freight Station[edit]

About.com claims [1] that the Container Freight Station in Hong Kong has seven million square feet of space, but I haven't found much other reference to it. There's some reference elsewhere to the new Hong Kong airport being one of the biggest structures in the world, but I'm not sure about that either (one of the old Berlin airports is huge, though, either Tempelhof International Airport or Tegel International Airport). Probably don't rank first, but probably worth mentioning User:Mulad (talk) 12:51, Sep 9, 2004 (UTC)

Largest by area[edit]

The article says the Boeing building is the largest by volume, and that the Pentagon is the largest office building by area. Is the Boeing building the largest overall by area, as well? If not, what is? By looking at their images on Google maps, it looks like the Pentagon could easily fit inside the Boeing building.

  • What are the co-ordinates of the Boeing building on google earth? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 138.253.244.126 (talk) 11:14, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

The Everett factory is located at 47.9264265,-122.2707354. The floor area listed does not include office blocks and mezzanines within the factory (another ~250-300k ft^2 minimum), merely the main factory floor. A recent addition to the factory (AKA 40-27) brings the area up to ~4.5M ft^2 or 420,000 m^2 (per google maps tool). The roof height of that section is the same as the factory, so the volume would be adjusted similarly. 130.76.24.20 (talk) 18:05, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

Also, it's not entirely clear in the phrasing right now: when measuring the Pentagon's area, does it count the area of the ground covered, or the total area of all floors in the building?

Since when is the Great Wall of China a building?75.16.73.21 01:32, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

Shouldn't K-25, Oak Ridge, TN USA be included? It is half a mile long and over 1000 feet wide and is has more area under a single roof then the pentagon. 87.177.1.197 (talk) 18:29, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

For that matter, both the Aalsmeer Flower Auction building in the Netherlands and The Venetian in Macau are listed on this page as the largest in usable floor space. 128.253.240.145 01:54, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

What about the McCoy bldg in Columbus Ohio? The wiki page doesn't list volume, (which seems a strange and arbitrary measurement,) but it does list square feet at 2 million. McCoy Building 174.126.29.222 (talk) 15:37, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Largest by length[edit]

The Stanford Linear Accelerator Center is 3.2 kilometers (2.0 miles) long. The Wikipedia entry says "The above-ground klystron gallery atop the beamline is the longest building in the United States." It might be interesting to add a section covering the world's longest buildings.

There's a contradiction in the article on this point. It says the Great Wall of China is the largest building in the world by footprint. Well, if it counts as a "building" for determining footprint, it's a heck of a lot longer than 3.2km as well. The article should clarify the definition of "building" and either count the Great Wall or not. PubliusFL 03:50, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Definition[edit]

There should be a more precise definition of what is a building and what is several buildings. For example, Coeur Défense in Paris has the same floor level as the Palace of Parliament in Bucharest. But its shape is very particular (several towers on a common 3-level basement). So does it qualify as the largest European building (on par with the Palace of Parliament)? (see photos at http://www.viguier.com (20 Projets -> Chronology -> 1992) or here). Thbz 05:11, 19 April 2006 (UTC)

It isn't the largest in Europe anyway as the Alsmeer Flower Auction is in Europe too and much larger. But if the share the same basement I think they should be counted as one building and added to the list. -- H005 23:13, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

Palace of Parliament[edit]

The ranking of the Romanian People's Palace is highly suspect. Many buildings are larger, both by floor space and by volume. Romanians consistently boast that the building is one of the largest in the world, but various research I've done puts it fairly far down the list. I don't have the figures in front of me (nor do I have time to re-research at the moment), but some of the contenders that are not listed in this article include some mega-malls and some of the new tallest-in-the-world buildings in Asia. The Great Pyramid of Cholula, Mexico, has a volume more than nine times the size, according to thefreedictionary.com. There are also larger train stations and airports. However, the "fact" that the People's Palace is one of three buildings visible from space/ well, one square meter smaller than the Pentagon/ well, one of the largest buildings in the world/ well, maybe one of the largest office buildings/ well, at least one of the largest in Europe is deeply embedded within the Romanian national discourse.

Whether it is the heaviest building is a different question, and one on which I have no information. However, any claims about its size relative to other buildings should be considered suspect pending further research. Malangali 17:28, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

What about this factory? The "Volkswagenwerk Kassel"in Germany (Volkswagen Factory). Look on the aerial picture you will be able to see this from space too: 4 halls of 550 meters lenght which are connected by a large 1.2 kilometers long front - shouldn't this count as one building?

http://www.wikimapia.org/#lat=51.257913&lon=9.433844&z=16&l=5&m=a&v=2

here you can see the front http://www.hr-online.de/website/rubriken/nachrichten/index.jsp?rubrik=11416&key=standard_document_5447588&lugal=1&ibp=0 this article says the first 3 (of the 4) halls have 135,000, 140,000 and 120,000 square meters (together 395,000 square meters + the not listed hall 4 with estimated 120,000 and the 1.2 meters long front building would result in at least 515,000 square meters floor area and rank 9 of the buildings by largest floor area.) http://regiowiki.hna.de/Ansiedlung_des_Volkswagen-Zweigwerkes you can find a map of the area here: http://www.vw-personal.de/www/de/arbeiten/standorte/kassel/ihr_weg_zu_vw_in_kassel.html

Largest Wooden Structure in the World[edit]

Kirkland Air Force Base in New Mexico claims to have the largest wooden structure in the world. The structure in the Trestle for testing aircraft for EMP. There isn't much information on the web about it, but I found a claim at http://cryptome.quintessenz.at/mirror/6odd-eyeball.htm. Kaiser9111 16:24, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

The Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, WA, USA "is 530 feet in diameter and 152 feet tall." according to their official website: http://www.tacomadome.org/history.aspx I believe that is larger than the Tōdai-ji which is listed here as the largest wooden structure in the world. --Neemund (talk) 08:32, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

The airship hangar at Tillamook, Oregon has about 28,000 square meters of floor space making it about a third larger than the Tacoma dome and about ten times the size of the Great Buddha Hall. I believe the airship hangars at Tustin, California are of similar dimensions to Tillamook. They stand a thousand feet long, nearly 300 feet wide and nearly 200 feet tall, and inside it's all clear space. They are clearly buildings--they have roofs and walls and are completely enclosed from the elements--and while they use metal fasteners they are of the sort of construction that most people think of as "wooden" so I can't think of a reason why one of them should not be listed as the largest wooden building. 70.172.201.34 (talk) 02:14, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

Seconded on the Tillamook hanger, it's a wood building - they built the hanger during WWII when they had to use metal for other things. According to this: http://www.tillamookair.com/html/bldg.html - it's 205,824 sqft — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.32.88.40 (talk) 07:19, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

I removed Todai-ji. Whatever the largest wooden building is - it's certainly not that. Hotel Del Coronado may be the largest I can find, though the hotel itself doesn't seem to boast of it. A couple sites say it has just under a million square feet of space - http://www.timesharepages.com/finance/hotel-del-coronado-gets-extension-on-mortgage-repayment/ Of course, it really depends what your metric is for "largest"... is it cubic feet of space occupied? Is it the square feet of the structure's base footprint? Or is it the square feet of total floorspace? (in which case multi-floored buildings have an edge over a big hollow hangar). 66.167.106.217 (talk) 02:07, 9 August 2012 (UTC)

List of world's largest domes[edit]

Permit me to comment on the construction of the Mosta Dome. No, it was not built by the British Empire! What's the source of this information? The British Empire, did not build any catholic church in Malta Maltesedog 16:26, 7 February 2007 (UTC)

Special Catagories table[edit]

The special catagories section is getting messy as people keep adding new catagories, I propose to put a table there instead of the list as I think it would clear it up nicely. Ive started a table here to see if it will go ok. If anyone opposes this idea or would like to add or change the table in any way, please feel free to discuss it here.

Type of building Name Location Size
Largest Church Basilica of Our Lady of Peace of Yamoussoukro Yamoussoukro, Côte d'Ivoire 30,000 m² (323,000 sq ft
Largest Palace Forbidden City Beijing, China 720,000m² (7.75 million sq ft)
Largest Airport King Fahd International Airport Dammam, Saudi Arabia 780 km² (301 sq miles)

Cstubbies (talk) 20:31, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

I'm so sorry but I thought we're talking about the largest buildings, not area covered of the airport. Very misleading. 58.147.46.115 (talk) 14:43, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Beijing Airport Termnal 3[edit]

The building area is 986,000 sq m, height is 45m, so the volume should be 44 million cubic m. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.204.10.40 (talk) 22:34, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Would somebody with greater skills than I possess update the site to show that the new Terminal 3 at the Beijing International Airport, due to open Feb 29, 2008, is now, I believe, the largest building coming in at 1.3 million m2 or 14 million ft2. Please see http://www.fosterandpartners.com/News/328/Default.aspx 68.198.49.161 (talk) 14:30, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

  • After checking the article and some of the pictures I think the terminal is made up of three or maybe four seperate buildings. In the Foster and partners article it suggests 1.3 million sq meters of floor space 'mostly under one roof'. I'm confident that one or two of these buildings will definately belong on the list, we just need to find find a reliable source that states the size of each building.CStubbies 17:38, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
Here is a picture showing the layout of the terminal[2]. It cleary shows at least three seperate buildings. If they are connected by a basement of some sort it could be an exception but until it is proven by a reliable source, it shouldnt be on the listCStubbies 18:36, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

Steel Mills[edit]

Modern steel mills usually keep caster and rolling train under one roof to avoid reheating of the slab before rolling. Some of them reach 1500m and more in length, about 300m in width and 30m in height, thus covering more area and space than most of the listed buildings, if not all. I know of two mills of this size currently under construction in Magnitogorsk and Nischni Nowgorod, 8 mills of the same type (5000 mm plate mill) already exist in Japan and Germany. Maybe we should take these buildings into account, too? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Käptn Weltall (talkcontribs) 09:14, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Largest usable space[edit]

There may be some redundancy in the section between the text and the table. Other opinions would be welcome. Thanks. --THE FOUNDERS INTENT TALK 19:05, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

The section should explain what is meant by "usable" space. Do people build buildings with large amounts of unusable space? Is floor area or volume the important measure? Does it refer to the space within a single "room"? Can there be supporting columns to hold up the roof? I am not sure why the McDermott building is mentioned in the text. If user 167.24.104.150 is right, I would expect to see it in the "Largest area" list. JonH (talk) 10:56, 6 December 2008 (UTC)
This is terrible: "largest amount of usable space". Clearly what is intended is, "Largest single usable space" 63.145.34.130 (talk) 02:21, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Changed the floor area to reflect the building and not the covered parking at the facility raising the "rank" from 29 to 26. Eagletennis (talk) 02:58, 2 May 2010(UTC)
So, what's the answer here? Is this supposed to mean "largest volume of a single room" or "largest floor area of a single room" or something else? It needs to be fixed. ColinClark (talk) 22:01, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Table messed up[edit]

During the various edit wars that seem to affect this page, Aalsmeer has disappeared from the table altogether -- by all accounts, it needs to be restored. I'd do it myself but I'm not confident enough about the topic area. Gusworld (talk) 14:03, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

How detailed should the list of Special Categories be?[edit]

The list of Special Categories can easily be enlarged a lot of. It is possible to make very specific categories and thus getting hundreds of them. I personally think we could keep adding categories until it starts to "look silly". After that we can simply lift the list of Special Categories out to a separate page and only leave say the 10 most important or so.

Does anyone have an opinion on if we should keep adding categories or if we should keep an upper limit?

Does anyone object to me adding the category "Largest Public Toilet Complex"? (It is Porcelain Palace in Chongqing by the way) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.227.58.24 (talk) 09:03, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

Shahin-e-iqbal (talk) 16:38, 8 August 2010 (UTC)== Angkor Wat is not that large == Angkor Wat is listed as having floor area of 1,000,000 m². The main temple is only about 250 m times 150 m and is only in one level. That would give it a floor area of roughly 37,500 m². The entire compounds it probably around 1,000,000 m² but most of that is forest or open spaces. Check out the article about Angkor Wat and you'll see that I'm right. Since this article is about the largest buildings I don't think forests and lawns should be included. Just like the parking lot are not included when you determine the size of a shopping mall. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.227.58.24 (talk) 09:19, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

Even if you're going to include open space in these rankings, Angkor Wat may not be the largest religious building. The figures in the article on Angkor Wat say its outer wall encloses only 820,000 square meters, which is much less than the million square meters given here. If Angkor Wat is going to stay in this position, it needs a citation. A. Parrot (talk) 23:39, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
I have replaced it by the Masjid al-Haram in Mecca becasue the mosque covers more than 4,000,000 sqr m of useable area and is also the most sacred site for the muslims (hence a religious site).Shahin-e-Iqbal (talk) 22:33, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Largest by volume?[edit]

Shouldn't there also be a list of the largest buildings where the definition is by volume rather than by floor area?

Large Hadron Collider[edit]

In my opinion Large Hadron Collider should be included on this page (unless there is a larger particle accelerator somewhere). Does anyone object to me adding the category "Largest Particle Accelerator" or "Largest Circular Building" or "Largest Research Building"? One problem is of course that it is mostly housed in a tunnel and not in a building. Does anyone have an idea of a way to include LHC without violating the intent with the article?

As a large tunnel, it belongs (and is already listed in) in List of longest tunnels in the world, not here... Jpatokal (talk) 09:18, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

WHY was the Taipei 101 not in the list[edit]

It ranks in at like 20 out of 32 and is also very tall, not just some large warehouse. It has over 400,000 square meters. Daniel Christensen (talk) 22:41, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Year of construction/completion?[edit]

Just out of curiosity, would it be possible to add to the tables when these structures were built or completed? It's one particular piece of info I was looking for in reading this article and it's noticeably absent. Many of these buildings were the largest in the world in their category at some point before being superceded by the next one, so adding one column giving simple chronological info I think would be very relevant.--137.122.49.102 (talk) 15:47, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

Historical largest buildings[edit]

I believe that there should be a list of historical largest buildings by floor area and/or that dates of construction should be included in the charts to give readers a time line type reference. I believe that this may also be justified through the Centennial Exposition Article for the 1876 World's Fair which states that the main exhibition building was the largest in the world at the time. Eagletennis(talk) 02:46, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

List of shopping malls should be split[edit]

I suggest we split the list of shopping malls to its own article. It doesn't make since that it's the only category here with a full list instead of just adding the biggest to the special categories section. I looked into the history and found that it did have its own article a while ago, and I have no idea what could be the rationale behind the merge. I'll keep the status quo for now to see if anyone has any complaints. -- Orionisttalk 08:12, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

K-25[edit]

I thought about removing K-25 from the list, but decided to open it for discussion first. Demolition of K-25 began in 2008 and is slated for completion in 2011 as noted here Large sections of the building are completely gone. ++Arx Fortis (talk) 17:47, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

This discussion page has been split[edit]

Target distro center[edit]

Looks like the data for floor space and volume are a little off. Can someone confirm? Matttoothman (talk) 17:28, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

Serious Cleanup Needed[edit]

Many of the "buildings" in the list are a complex of several buildings, including the "Jakarta Central Park" and the Towers in Saudi Arabia. By that standard, Rockefeller Center would be the "largest building" in the world, and we would have to include the many buildings of the new World Trade Center too, once they were done. When a building is defined as a single building under a single roof, as much as a quarter of the list could be removed. -- 24.215.246.114 (talk) 21:39, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

Warren G. Magnuson Health Sciences Building[edit]

The Starbucks Center page lists that it is the largest building in Seattle by floor space, with a reliable source at the local major newspapers website, where as the Warren G. Magnuson Health Sciences Building lists that it is 3 times larger, although its source is only a blog entry. I do not think that is a verifiable source, or one of the pages is wrong.76.28.251.236 (talk) 17:47, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

List of largest airport terminals in the world[edit]

If there exists a list of the largest shopping malls in the world, then why isn't there a list of largest airport terminals in the world? In the "List of largest buildings in the world" article, twelve airport terminals are listed under the section titled "largest floor space":

  • Dubai International Airport Termimal 3
  • Beijing Capital International Airport Terminal 3
  • Hong Kong International Airport Terminal 1
  • Suvarnabhumi Airport Terminal 1
  • Mexico City International Airport Terminal 1
  • Barcelona Airport Terminal 1
  • Indira Gandhi International Airport Terminal 3
  • Incheon International Airport Terminal 1
  • Madrid Barajas Airport Terminal 1
  • Toronto Pearson International Airport Terminal 1
  • Soekarno–Hatta International Airport Terminal 3
  • Narita International Airport Terminal 1
  • Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 3

At various other airports, other terminals with a floor area of at least a million sq ft are likely to exist. So, can a plan to spin-off the airport terminals into their own list be considered or should the large airport terminals remain in this article? Jim856796 (talk) 21:39, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

Buildings that need to be added[edit]

The Dubai Pearl is larger than any building on this list. According to wikipedia, it is 1.85 million square meters, and some estimates take it as far as 20 million square feet. The structure is under construction and even though it has a heigh of 984 feet, it appears to be longer than it is tall.

Another canidate for this list would be the Orange County Convention Center, which contains 7,000,000 square feet of enclosed space. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jag140 (talkcontribs) 03:06, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Just this list, which only covers Ford factories, has already several buildings with a larger footprint/floor area than the buildings listed. I don't believe for a second that this article is complete.--193.53.37.25 (talk) 14:14, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

I'd be wary of that list by Ford as their claimed plant size equals their claimed site size for at least the top two. That implies the building size could well be much smaller. --Skytopia (talk) 10:53, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

CCTV[edit]

Why isn't the CCTV Headquarters on this page? It has a floor area of 389,079m^2. (See http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=8094)

Proposed split[edit]

I think this article should be split in two. One article for the largest buildings by volume, and one for the largest buildings by floor space. This talk page is getting very confusing. When someone suggests adding a new building, it is not always clear which list they want to add the building to. I would not be confident enough to split the page myself so I am hoping that somebody else could do this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.42.111.239 (talk) 09:51, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

IKEA[edit]

I saw that the warehouse of IKEA in Piacenza (Italy) has a footprint of 157,000 m2 (there are 2 different working areas, but in an only one building) and it is long about 1 km, so i think that it could be inserted in the statistic. Can anyone check and eventually insert it inside the page? --TM17 08:55, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

The attached article documents the building's (Building 2001 at the DLA facility in New Cumberland, Pa 17070) immense size and should be added to you list of the 35 buildings with the largest foot print.

Thank You, Ralph Blake

London Millenium Dome[edit]

I'm surprised not to see the Millenium Dome not listed here. Its diameter is 365m making the notional space 104,634m2 and height 52m making the volume 2.794 million m3. I haven't added it yet as there may have been objections that it is a temporary structure. But it was originally an exhibition hall and now houses permanent entertainment facilities. Clearly its life will not be as long as some other structures but does that disbar it? Chris55 (talk) 10:33, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

Is the millenium dome actually a proper building? I have never been in it but I always believed that it was a large marquee over several smaller buildings. If it is only that then it is the buildings inside that should count, not the entire dome. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.42.64.202 (talk) 12:00, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

Skechers Distribution Warehouse[edit]

GAP/Old Navy has a large distribution warehouse that is larger than the Target one listed, it is 2.4 million square feet. (222,960-sq.-m) http://www.siteselection.com/issues/2003/mar/p146/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.42.208.182 (talk) 17:05, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

John Deere North American Parts Distribution Center[edit]

The John Deere North American Parts Distribution Center in Milan, IL, USA (warehouse) should be added to the largest footprint section. 2,600,000+ sq ft (241,548 sq m) of floor space, one level.

This one came to mind for me, as well! In fact, there are several large motor vehicle spare parts warehouses globally that should also be listed here. I will add some once I find some publicly available data (I know of data for all these buildings, but it's proprietary). --BCC (talk) 22:27, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

Why has this been removed from the page? Multiple sources cite it as 2.65 million square feet. Recent article here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.43.65.245 (talk) 13:26, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

The Willow Run bomber plant in Michigan seems to be large enough to be on this list, if it's still around? [3] -- Beland (talk) 02:29, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

  • http://www.airport-technology.com/projects/incheon/
    Triggered by \bairport-technology\.com\b on the local blacklist

If you would like me to provide more information on the talk page, contact User:Cyberpower678 and ask him to program me with more info.

From your friendly hard working bot.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 13:22, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

 Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 19:33, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Why isn't there a list of the most massive man made structures? We seem to have everything else???[edit]

How about a list of man made structures over 5 million tones??? or 5.5 million tones?

It is a very interesting statistic and there seems to be no information on it.

The Giza Pyramid is estimated to be 5.9 million tonnes.

Is there any structure more massive, either a building or a dam?

What about the sulfur step pyramids of Alberta Canada? Together there mass is 8.9 million tones, but the biggest might only be about 5 million tones? http://williamahuston.blogspot.com/2013/06/the-great-sulfur-pyramids-of-alberta.html

Oh it looks like dams can be more massive than pyramids, but not by much:

        The hoover Dam weights about 6.6 million tonnes, but that is the only dam I can find.

http://www.usbr.gov/lc/hooverdam/faqs/damfaqs.html

I found a little more information on some huge sky scrapers, it looks like reasonable estimates and you can see how much less massive skyscrapers are, but it might be interesting to have them in the list for comparison?:

          Taipei 101 weighs in at a staggering 700,000,000 kg or 771,000 tonnes
          World Trade Center 1 or 2 estimated to 500,000,000 kg or 551,115 tonnes
          Empire State Building, NYC = 365,000,000 kg or 402,303 tonnes

I got this info at this forum: http://www.physforum.com/What-was-the-weight-of-a-WTC-Tower_4299.html

Any ideas how to get more of this kind of information? It should just be a simple calculation for most man made objects like dams etc.

LM Aero Factory should be added to the list[edit]

Should the Lockheed Martin Aeronautics F-35 assembly building at AF base #4 be included in this list? It's a factory similar in size to the Boeing Everett Factory. I'm not sure of the exact size, but on a satellite map, it looks to be about 300x5000 = 1,500,000 ft^2.

Tesla Gigafactory[edit]

Should this even be listed? It's not finished, let alone enclosed the claimed footprint. The current footprint won't even get it on the list. 130.76.24.20 (talk) 18:16, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

Inaccurate Article[edit]

There is a lot of buildings that are missing from this page and a lot of buildings that should not be on this page because they are larger.

Here is just a few that I can think of from the top of my head in the Toronto area alone in terms of footprint.

I think that the list should be limited to a smaller number of buildings in order to facilitate the monitoring of their accuracy. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gabrieldenis85 (talkcontribs) 22:13, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

Tesla Fremont factory not one big building.[edit]

The article currently lists Tesla's Fremont facility as #1 at 530,000 m2. That may be the total floor area of all the buildings, but no one building is that big.[4] There are roads between some of the buildings. Ford's River Rouge plant has 1.6 million square meters, but not in one building. John Nagle (talk) 02:55, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

American Greetings[edit]

American Greetings Corp. operates a distribution center in Osceola, AR that is 2,600,000 Sq Ft. This building should certainly be on the list. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.163.2.56 (talk) 14:23, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

Amazon Fulfillment Centers[edit]

Amazon has a whole series of Fulfillment Centers in various locations with sizes ranging upwards from 1.2 million square feet, which is larger than the bottom entires in the list. Some of the larger missing entries may push this size of building off the bottom of the list, however, depending on how large the list is meant to be. 45.72.231.62 (talk) 13:44, 27 March 2017 (UTC)
