ok, this is what i think happens
typical floor = 3.1m or 10ft
there are larger floors which are 3.6m or 12ft. these happen on lev67 & 73 for some reason.and then penthouse levels 87 & 88.
the lev89 penthouse is huge with a 4.8m floor. also plant above is 4.8m which is currently uc.
the top 2 levels (lev91/92 are also plant and they are 3.6m each/
diagram below to explain

yeah dealer plates. I didn't take anymore, but I thought I did. I was just walking by in a hurry headed somewhere else and noticed the car. Then, I put the camera on the ground to get Trump in the background and snapped a few.

Waterview Tower - 1047'/89 fl (On Hold) (rumor is papers for loan are signed, to re-start in early september)

Mandarin Oriental Tower Chicago - 930'/75 fl (App)

almost a supertall they say that could start in the fall.
