There's higher standards now-a-days with people/companies wanting higher ceilings. For instance One Vanderbuilt under construction in NYC will be 427 meters with 58 floors. While the Empire State building, which is shorter has over 100.

The Illinois has zero floors.

Ceiling height is more because hot climate demands it to be so.

easy... it has a huge spire with the only intention to give it height, the usable height of this building is around 600m, so you have 400m on top just to get a world record

maybe because, as one can see looking at his work, Frank Lloyd Wright preferred to build very low ceilings for his houses.
By the way I suspect that the Illinois could have been his worst project (his only skyscraper is one of the least successful buildings in his huge body of work in my opinion).

google nearest primary school near you, seek admission then continue to progress and finally you'll have an answer if you're lucky.
By the way it is a general knowledge thing which I have heard you don't do in new lands...do you? so pardon the pardon.

You're trying to link to an image that doesn't seem to exist. Your best bet is to make a screenshot:

Maybe still become tallest, because Dubai Tower construction should be slow down on top structure, where floors will begin.
Although the trunk of Dubai Tower should grow significantly faster then Jeddah Tower.

Anyway it's going to be an interesting race

It will be the tallest building

But, Dubai tower will be the tallest structure

Which Dubai Tower? If you are talking about The Tower At Dubai Creek Harbor, this one will still be tallest. The Tower At Dubai Creek Harbor is a tower, not a building. And if you are talking about all structures for the ''tallest one'' part, maybe the Jeddah Tower will still be tallest, because the height for The Tower is still not yet revealed to the public or not yet confirmed.
