WORLD'S TALLEST BUILDINGS
GOING UP: The race is on to build the highest structure of this millennium. Shanghai's giant-in-progress, the 460-m World Financial Center, is vying to take the World's Tallest title from the suddenly puny 452-m Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur. Meanwhile, Melbourne's Grollo Tower, a 560-m megalith, is slated for completion in December. With information laid out on virtual floors, this well-designed website provides a front-row seat to the challenge.
