It's time for Chicago SPIRE to install a SPIRE on the building, however I agree it would have a weird appearance. If there was a 550 meter flood, you still could live in Chicago Spire!!! Pentominium would be water world!!! If Pentominium wants to beat the record, then they should make it like 170 floors and upgrade the foundation design.

Cul's diagram illustrates how silly the rules are. Is Pentominium really the talllest ?

Looks like another Eureka vs Q1 debate on which is the tallest but of course alot higher with the Spire and Pentominium.
IMO yes technically if you go on highest point of structure then sure the building with the spire wins but if you are professing to live in the tallest residential building in the world then it should relate to who has the highest floor/roof. It's not like one could reside on a pole, I suppose you could but it would be very windy/cold/no room to move etc etc.

It's indeed far more interesting to look at the highest apartments in an all residential.

What if the 342 meters Al Attar Tower in Sheik Zayed Road turns out to be a fully residential tower? Then we would have the new tallest soonier then we all thought.

Sorry, but I don't think Dubai's skyline will rival NYC's because Dubai's towers are nearly all glassy and new, while NYC's has glassy and new but a mix and is a much more dense area than Dubai. IMHO Although Dubai's skyline is nice.
