You're so called placeholders are a great enrichment. Without them we would have dozens of missing buildings in the diagrams

I know it's a megatall since it's over 2000 ft I'm just using that super-mega-hypertall as a pun kinda to these silly titles they give buildings for certain heights.

My only wish is there will be a super-mega-hypertall section one day. That will be something. Maybe 1,000,000 meters or something lol
