Maybe 1WTC will be tallest pure office building upon completion(highest floor), since WFC will be multipurposes as shown above^

1WTC will be ~420m without the spire. SWFC is already 435m without hole and upper structure.
So 1WTC will maybe hold the tallest spire record

With more than 80m wide at the top @492m, SWFC will have the world tallest/widest roof.

For those people who have The Discovery Channel....

On July 24 (next tuesday) the show Build It Bigger is all about Shanghaii FC

Build It Bigger
World's Tallest Skyscraper
TV-PG (L)

Danny Forster climbs into the frame of the Shanghai World Financial Center, the tallest building in the world at its completion, venturing inside construction of this massive skyscraper.

http://dsc.discovery.com/tv-schedule....25456.34169.5


I know someone who worked on the show. It is a good episode.
