"Symbolic height?" Seriously?!?

The structure is as tall as it is, who cares what some group of self-appointed arbitors says? C'mon folks, stop getting caught up in this. The building doesn't have feelings. No matter what the official record says this STRUCTURE will be whatever it is to the roof and 1,776 ft to the little red light. It will be 1,776 feet tall no matter what the arbitors say. The self appointed arbitors need to be consistent. Have one category, call it world's tallest structure and go from the street to the red light, no matter what the architect calls the fancy stick they place on the roof. Be it over the top fancy like the Burj or utilitarian like Willis. Either count them all or don't. If this and Trump count then Willis Tower's rabbit ears should count too.

I totally agree with everything you said, I was just saying what the page I mentioned said. I have always gone by roof height,top floor height, and pinnacle. That's why the CTBUH made 4 categories after the Sears and Petronas debate. People realized how tiny the Petronas looked next to the sears, which was about 230 feet taller at roof height, and 77 meters taller at pinnacle because of the Sears awesome rocket-ship antennae's.

I'm not normally superstitious, but I heard that if you say "freedom tower" three times fast the building gets delayed another three years.

What a great day for America, we have shown that the devastating attacks of 9/11 have not killed our spirit, but have actually made us stronger!
