Speaking of Centennial, I'm just curious where the figure of 188m/599' comes from? I'm not contesting, but rather, I believe that is the right height. In the diagrams section it was listed as 177m with the spire, but now that the building has topped out, you can see it clearly wasn't the right height.
I'm not sure where you're seeing the figure 188m. It's listed as 186.2m to the spire both here and in the diagram section.
Anyway, with respect to when a building is considered built, I'm following the lead of the diagram editors. I'm not quite sure, but I think that they consider a building complete when it's either open to the public (for office buildings) or when tenants start to move in (residential buildings). Also, you might notice that I'm not listing anything as U/C if it's only in the site prep/demolition stage (such as L Tower), which I believe is also the convention with the diagrams.
Even though MLS and Centennial are topped out and essentially complete externally (which I've indicated with an asterisk on the quick list), I'm going to leave them on the list until it's official. After all that time spent getting dressed and primping, I figure they deserve a little walk down the red carpet before heading into the ball.
