And those make also the bulk of that '57' quoted number.

Isn't the current tallest octogonal tower in Sydney?
If it's still the one, this is going to beat it by quite a margin ;-)

Well, the tallest one(s) using an octogonal pattern are the Petronas Towers (452m) - this'll be out of bounds for 23 Marina.

But probably you were looking for a more simple shape, an octogonal tower with a straight vertical facade and without ledges etc. Then you might be right with Sydney... IDS Tower / Minneapolis (241m) is only octogonal when seen from far, and towers like 311 South Wacker Drive / Chicago (293m) or Bear Stearns World HQ / NYC (231m) have non-octogonal floors, too.

So we can compare 23 Marina with the 228m of the MLC Centre from down under - and "Twenty-Three" will surpass this very soon.

This will slow down now since the next floor is another mechanical floor.
