The height of 160 and 140 meters isn´t confirmed.

I´d say that the buildings won´t surpass 130 meters

That would be very nice, but with a floor to ceiling height of 5,6 meters in the duplex parts of the building I will be hard to hit 158 meters.

I´d say that every two floors height equals to 5,8 or 5,9 meters.

The crown looks like it will have a height similar of 4 ordinary floors, so we can say that the towers height will be around 128,7 and 117

Ok, size doesn't automatically mean height, right?

Glad to see they're naming buildings after American states.

In that part of the city, street names are named after American places: Rua Flórida, Rua Kansas,... lots of them!

every building in Brazil has a name. And as you know, there are thousands of buildings in the country. Developers soon get no more ideas for names. There are french names, english names, turkish names, portuguese names, historical people names, states names, country names, etc, etc.

In fact, now that I look at it, they spelled A LOT of names wrong.

Unless they were trying to translate them into Portuguese?

the only street not translated is Miami, which would be written Maiami, if translated to portuguese. Nova Orleãns is New Orleans. Nova Iorque is New York.

translations between languages are very common, specially for famous emperors, kings, etc. Fernão de Magalhães becomes Magellan in english.
