Is it just me or is the floor height very tall in this building? Seems so if you compare with the surrounding buildings.

maybe.

But for most offices this building has more floor space for its height. Look at the supertall list and compare ICC's height and floors with those of other buildings. ICC is very efficient

It is, office buildings are far taller than residential buildings for the same number of stories.
