1,000' more usable floor area than the world trade center, then a 1,000' spire on top of the floor area.

Even in Manhattan , One World Trade Center is 28 ft shorter than 432 Park Ave not counting the spire .

KT will be the tallest building in the world in three short years and One World Trade Center will be one of the the most overpriced buildings on the planet along with 2 World Trade Center.

It is! Think about someone hears about this building that is 1KM. He will be like "Wow! that's a amazing! when its done, i'm gonna go to the top floor which might be around 950 Meters and look at this beautiful world!" then he finds out that the highest floor is at 670 meters and gets disappointed.
Also, 330 meters of unusable height isn't Short. its like a supertall!
