What do you propose to make this bi*ch 3meters or 13-14 feet taller, Another floor? (highly doubtly),,,,a spire that flys the flag of the nation.. Damn we're talking 12 feet, for MEGA.. Or make the top part of the diamond 3meters, or 14 ft taller.. Or a spire that claims 3 meters taller,,,NON-Conflict Diamond? I'm just whipping around some stupid ideas,, the architects have to have this in the back of they're minds????

just why, 3 meters literally makes no visual difference. why would anyone raise it just so it could have the name megatall, which nearly noone knows about outside forums anyway. they simply do not care and it is good they don't, because otherwise there would be even more spire cheating in this world than there is already

596.6 m is indeed very respectable. The decimal number system and the megatall name are both just artificial. I couldn't care less, and I don't believe the architect cares either. Even 601.0 m would be a more reasonable target to surpass Makkah Royal Clock Tower Hotel.

the building in Mecca is no cheater at all. i mean the top of the building is not an antenna going up or something it is a massive tower with a crown like structure ending it. people can even go inside that thing.

I don't understand why people call the BK a cheater than. It to has a fitting top where people can go inside and even outside on the top.

Agree, BK is in every category the tallest. So it's definitely not a cheater. Also BK has an integrated spire, not like 1WTC for example.

1WTC that is a real cheater. 120m+ ugly antenna mast on the roof that they consider spire.

Speaking of megatall term - I would call megatall everything that has roof at 500m+. Comparing to quite typical nowadays 300-350m heights 500m+ by roof is in completely different weight category. For me Chow Tai Fook Guangzhou, Zhongguo Zun and Lotte World Tower are real megatalls.
