heres a quick size diagram to show comparison.
widths/heights are from official data.
hard to believe Spire is basically same width as Sears at base

Wow what a gorgeous pic, and all those people just casually; walking past as if a 400+ metre tower weren't being built right before their eyes.

I hardly consider 300m to be a supertall. Look at the word. It is relative to what is going on today. Supertall has to be superior to most every skyscraper going up. Buildings 300m are a dime a dozen these days. The minimum should be 400m and by today's standards I would be looking to more like 500m.

300m towers are tall buildings today and no more.

I agree ZZ. Have supertall at 400m and megatall at 600m. That is a good separation.

Some misc pics from Wednesday 4/30:

Detail of the walkway finishes:



Installing the stainless railings:



Other side, SE corner, walking from the lobby to the river:



The view will be choice:



Couldn't find out what they were assembling/installing here, but the blue/green cube looks otherworldly:



Note the drawbridge:



Cliff effect of Trump's South wall face:

No it should work by 300 meter 'steps':

> 300 = supertall
> 600 = megatall
> 900 = hypertall? gigatall? ****methatstall?

Not sure what the third one should be, but 300 meter groups is the way to go I'm positive.
