For the time being: yes.

When KT reaches +/- floor 50, other buildings will start.
Has to do with soil behaviour due to the large KT tower foundation.

Yeah the base of the spire for KT is as wide as some regular buildings.

1WTCQ's cheap spire was the joke of the decade.
There's nothing wrong to cheat on the height with spires, but please make it at least properly designed.

Maybe this is some sort how american express their gruesome vengeance with buildings like petronas,taipei101 etc

It's an entire complex of buildings. The WTC1 is the tallest of them. In the screen below you can see another WTC structure on right hand side of the photograph.

Thanks for the clear view renders alsaif2012.

Other than that it'll miss its best office/ apartment views, no complaints. Looks beautiful and tall !
Why do you say they are fake? Look on the left and clearly you can floor plates behind the glass.

A bit dissapointed with fake glass on concrete side walls, matte black or other colour vertical line starting from ground would have looked better in my opinion.
