This paper claims that 1:5:200 is more of a marketing buzz with few evidence from a scientific point of view. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 06:45, 8 February 2007


The article forgot to mention whether run cost is 200x build cost or 1/200th build cost —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Tabby (talkcontribs) 01:06:48, August 19, 2007 (UTC). The article also forgot to use skyscraper as a study subject. Normal life cost calculation are based on 35 years instead of 25 years. For eg. the International Commerce Centre (ICC) of Hong Kong. It's 108 levels rented by 3 investment banks, Morgan Stanley, Swiss Financial Bank and Deutsche Bank. The ratio may well over 1:5:200. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:50, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
