because of the long spire making the most of structural height and its width is very wide compared to the height.

thats not all. its also cuz the cladding isnt finished yet. THe part that is cladded stand out more and the the part up to the roof stands out less. It will look taller when its complete.

the reason why it doesnt look tall is because in reality its a 300m tower .,/ with 80m tall roof feature which is then topped with a 70m spire.

its no sears tower but its now listed as taller?

you saing half the height tower is the crown + spire? That's obviously not true. from what I'm looking at.
