They add 20 or so to the actual floor number because of the concrete bunker base.

As far as I'm concerned, BD is already the tallest in the world. Only CN Tower to beat.

DIAGRAM UPDATE
yes ,Guangzhous towers core is a bit out of centre. ive edited diagram due to finding out current status of approx 135m.
ALSO, the steel for lev94 on SWFC has been put up and officially passed 421m Jin mao tower. SWFC is now 424m.

.cheers
