Largest Skyscrapers by Floor Area

Here at SSC, we are used to see the tallest buildings all the time, and because of that, it seemed to me, at least, that those were also the largest. But for construction and later use, what makes a building large is much more the amount of floor area that it has then how tall it is, and those two things are surprisingly unconnected. See those:
Wilshire Grand Tower: 335.3m tall, 139355m

Roppongi Hills Mori Tower: 238.1m tall, 380105 m

Almost three times larger, while still lower
One World Trade Center: 541.3m tall, 325,279 m

Willis Tower: 442.1 m tall, 416,000 m

Two buildings of comparable apparent size, one is quite a bit larger than the other,
and also, 1wtc is smaller than Mori Tower

Post other buildings that are surprisingly large or small!

Well,i searched this tower by some chinese websites,they are all shows it is largest,over 837000m,and also shows shanghai tower is over 420000m.

but 370.000m looks reasonable.

I am confused.
