Shouldn't a 3.2 or 3.7 meter be a more standart floor height?

i scaled an official elevation and measured 10 floors which equaled right on 40m.
so i also thought each floor would be about 3.6m. anyway ill work it out. ill amend it as time goes on.

Because of consistency I think, he hasnt illustrated the core for any of the buildings, and The Spire is just a reference object for height here.

Q1 Tower has an observation deck. In addition these towers are residential. Thats the main reason why they dont have observatory.

Q1 (Queensland One) -its state of Australia) has observation because its the tallest bldg on the Gold Coast and devloper realized it would make a lot of $$ if it had a rooftop observatory. Since the city didnt have any public observatorys and this was an iconic building, it seemed perfect to add one.
Gold coast is primarily a city of residential towers and hotels. not really a place for tall office blocks.thus another reason why an observatory on top of a unit block.

it such a great design!

Why does Chicago Spire's core top out at 300 meters. Is the remaining upper part steel like SWFC?

Pentominium is one anorexic tower, just like the Burj.
Very very skinny.
