If we are lucky there is one or two towers in the world above 1000 meters in ten years time.

And you are sitting around trying to figure out what towers above 15 km should be called.

Guess it's time to go back to school. Your vacation has already lasted way too long

With The Kingdom tower being constructed in Jeddah, over one km high, The term hypertall is considered very normal on its thread.

1 km high is a whole new category, IMO.

Lowrise 0-50 m
Highrise 50-150 m
Tall 150-300 m
Supertall 300-600 m
Megatall 600-1200 m
Ultratall 1200-2400 m
Hypertall 2400+ m

All of these taller than 50 m are skyscrapers and the full name should be "tall skyscraper", "supertall skyscraper", "megatall skyscraper"...

Hypertall sounds more taller than ultratall. It makes more sense that the every next height division is twice the taller than the last one.
