Does anyone know, why the Unicredit Tower on CTBUH is only 218m high. I always thought, that the tower is 231m high. The roof height is also different.
Instead of the 162m there are only ca. 140m.

Please change the information on Submit Data, if they are wrong.

218 m was the old and uncorrect hight we knew when the tower was still U/C and still without spire. but then we had official documents with all the right data. 231 m is correct. the last floor is at 146 m from ground level, but considering the sails, the right height (without spire) is 155 m ca.

Thanks, Erhan. Is there any special feature to determine which is which between the two?

I couldn't find a recent one but here is one which includes both Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque, plus the skyline. 2012

Thanks again, Erhan. The two almost appears identical except Hagia Sophia is colored pink and the Blue Mosque is dull white.

I am not Erhan but I will forward your appreciation to him It is true that both of them are designed based on the Byzantine/East Roman architecture. However, the Hagia Sophia is structurally way ahead of the Blue Mosque. It has a ginormous pendentive dome which was an amazing achievement in its era.(built apx 1500 years ago). There were 2 other churches in its place but they were demolished, burnt down and destroyed during wars. The first church was built in 346 and it was destroyed in June 20th 404. The second church was built on its remains in 415 and was burnt down January 13th 532 during the Nika Revolt. The third church was built on its ruins in 532. The third church is the current structure.

To me, Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque are entirely different and unique structures even though both are based on the Byzantine architecture. They both symbolize different stories. Interiors are completely different as well.

Oh, come on. Take a closer look, there's a plethora of easily discernible differences.

Yup, I couldn't find that interesting document, which was a technical explanation of the structure.

Anyway I found this pdf by Pelli's architectural studio with the list of the recently built towers with height data

http://pcparch.com/pcpa_assets/2014/...ent_towers.pdf

Unicredit tower is 229 m / 750 ft

This messy confusion anout height I think it's due to the podium which is elevated respect street level.

Something similar happened even for Allianz Tower at CityLife district as there is a street level, an 'underground level' and an elevated level
