Today I was surprised to find this thread moved to the supertall forum, but I couldn't find anything on the thread that could make us think that this tower is a supertall

Gaoloumi and CTBUH recognize this building as a supertall. As this building is 299.8m tall, if we consider 3 significant figures the height should be 300m. 0.2 m is not a big deal.

Source: http://skyscrapercenter.com/create.p...TSN&search=yes , http://www.gaoloumi.com/viewthread.p...extra=page%3D1

These two sources are credible enough, dont you think?

299.8m is 299.8m. It is not a >300m, it doesn't matter how much we wish it were. If we say that supertall = >299.8m then people will start protesting if we don't consider a 299.6m supertall since 0.2 "is not a big deal". 300m is a fair, clear and logical limit.

People in charge of determining the height of this tower are probably idiots, they chose to miss the chance to make this tower a 300m+ by a tiny margin, instead they are building another anonymous 200m+ tower. We should respect their stupidity.

We should probably move 299.45m Yujiapu Yinglan IFC out of supertalls too.

So very unfortunate that a building will not gain supertall status because of 20 cm only. We should cut it some slack, declining supertall status because of mere 20 cm is very harsh

CTBUH granted it supertall status by the way

Would it make sence to reach supertall status in an economic view or is this just prestige? Is it important for developers to reach supertall status and do they even know this word?
Btw. Nice design

Once it's topped out it should be moved to the supertall section every time a big pidgeon lands on its roof.

i remember seeing a buildings height being changed towards the upper number in the supertall section. so this building might should have the title of 300m, but still stay in this section.

well, since all other towers are measured in full meters, this one should be treated the same way. and mathematically speaking 299.8 is 300 if you decide to use rounded numbers. so if we want to be strict and correct in this forum, this building has to be numbered as 300m. no mather what.

The supertall status is something skyscraperfans have come up with it. But other than that, 99.9999% of the world don't know that or don't care

it will stay here. a mod decided that for all buildings we will round the normal way, but if it is rounded upwards to 300m it will stay in this section of the forum, but have the title of 300m. that is the easiest and most logical way to handle the problem.

If they add 20cm, they would have to add extra mechanical/refugee floor and also the building should comply to different regulation (I guess) and that's an extra expense.. This way it's still visually the same and they still can call it 300m and they don't care in which section of ssc it will go..
Anyway, I think 300m tower in skyscraper section will gain more attention than another 300m tower in Tianjin in supertall section (That's how I got here )
