300 feet is about correct.
no matter what it looks to you, we have people who have done comparisons and figured it out, remember u have only seen it from photos and never in reality, which is a totally different thing.

compare to nearby trucks, buildings and towers in Tom Green's webcam shots to see how massive it is.

100feet,

that is about as wide as this one here, which is considered to be among the thinnest skyscrapers in the world with a height to width ratio of more than 10:1.

The shape of the floorplate makes the tower seem larger than it actually is. There might be less floor space but because of its shape, it's actually a good bit wider than what a square building would be with the same square footage per floor.

just a quick scale from floor plans, the wings measure about 25m/80ft wide and 40m/130ft long.

For gross floor area I've been hearing 2 figures:

One is 3.7M sq ft but I've also seen something around 5M quoted aswell.
