NO, Ahangai will not have the tallest tower or any tower at all for that matter.

I would hope they would have a shorter spire as well, I'm not much of a spire fan on skyscrapers.

Short, long ... are so evasive terms and don't mean anything, untill we start talking about exact height figures, either of the building or the spire itself.

Given what the Chicago Spire looks like, that video might get an X rating
