It used to be 185m (therefore the name) but they changed the design and the height a bit. Now its 204m.

skyscrapers begin at 150m, it was ever so and will be so forever. ssc only has it at 200m to have enough threads in the highrise seciton, nothing more

I was gonna say...

Skyscrapers have always started at 150m

Low rise - 0-49
High rise 50-149
Skyscraper 150-299
Super tall - 300+


Also I find the fact that the name tower 185 has stuck funny.

An excellent addition for Frankfurt! With 5 towers over 200m, a 300m+ would work well.

Even a tower >400m would look ridiculous in Frankfurt!
