Hi all.

The level naming scheme for this project that we know:
(up to just above the current level and disregarding the form labels)

- level 27 - from the section drawing

(I presume levels 21 to 26 are named as such)

- level 20 - from the section drawing

(I presume levels 15 to 19 are named as such except by the drawing it looks like 16 could be named 15M)

- level 14 - from the section drawing
- level 13 - labeled on the structure
- level 12 - same

(I presume levels 8 to 11 are named as such)

- level 7 - from the section drawing
- level 6 - labeled on the structure
- level 4M - same
- level 4 - same
- level 2M - same
- level 2 - same
- level 1 - from the section drawing and labeled on the structure
- level B1M - labeled on the structure
- level B1 - same
- level B2 - from the section drawing and labeled on the structure



Here is a pic posted by Alsaif2012 I labeled to illustrate the heights.
(normally all heights are in reference to the future finished floor of the labeled level)

Khan also lists the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building as using the system, they were both long before the Sears. The two building you cite were his first use of the system, not the systems first use.
