Just think of 30 more floors on top of it, this will be a hell of a slender tower.

I think from that perspective, no. The roof will be very close in height, but it will be taller after Trump's spire is added. I'm sure someone can give exact measurements.

Can you explain what you mean when you say AON plans to go higher?

Am I missing something?

^plant to go higher then roof!
the bit on top of the bldg. (above roof) plantroom or LMR (lift motor room)
most large bldgs have rooftop plantrooms. eg John hancock, sears, ect
you can see AONs plantroom in this pic>

Thank you.

Nice pic to explain it.

Plant means mechanical floors!


Sorry but there was a lost in translation situation there.

English technicalities are rather difficult even for those that have been brought up under the language singularly.

My fault.
