Not really three times, but it does look like the height given in the thread title.

That far right model looks insane if the bays are one window per floor. Easily 140+ floors or so and as was said, 800+ meters it seems like. Lots of neat spire concepts in play, very cool.

Do both twin tower plots belong to the same developer?

It would be great if they used that design.

Appears to be 700+ and once again top core floor maxes out at ~600 or ~650, the current practical limit.

Holy smokes...138 floors!! Also, if they are dark sections of the design, the actual crown+spire might easily be over 100m!
