Yeah good find. Some of it is there. I definitely remember Dave going very in-depth with different iterations in other places too. It's a shame those images are no longer fully viewable anymore.
Funny how different people can look at the same data and draw different conclusions. When I look at the graphic you posted what I see is:I wasn't sure where to place this information, but I get emailed this report. (I don't remember how I got on this list) Anyway, all you height fanatics are going to LOVE the city comparisons in this document.

I was wondering the same thing. I guess because "...the 10th longest such run in any of the country's largest 40 cities" kind of undermined their point. It's terribly inconvenient when the facts don't support your argument.also -- not for nuthin, but where does 1971 come from? that's not the year it topped off or when it was completed. JHT was completed in 1976. US Steel was actually completed in 1971, so this chart is mixing falsehoods with facts. going by the ACTUAL year of completion, boston's tallest is younger than chicago's, washington's, pittsburgh's, and a bunch of others.
The JHT topped in 1971, and although the cladding was under-engineered, and had to be replaced, it was going up, the floors were poured, and there were humans walking around the high floors all the way to the roof, by that time. The JHT was declared completed much later, after the years long debacle of the glass panels falling from the sky, something like 10,000 windows replaced, and issues with the resins that secured them to the structure were resolved.also -- not for nuthin, but where does 1971 come from? that's not the year it topped off or when it was completed. JHT was completed in 1976....
This PDF has some interesting, enlightening stuff in there. Certainly well worth the look. Thanks.I wasn't sure where to place this information, but I get emailed this report.
