About chicago spire, does the core change at 300m height?, it looks as though from the diagram.

It gets narrower as it becomes higher.

i dont know. the highest in burj dubai will be about 380m. the SPIRE in chicago will be tallest units in world with units at 580m. i think 600m or 2000ft maybe as high as humans should live. but who knows.

i drew up pentominium when it was 516m. then they added spire. so ive left it.
looks like pentomium may get finsished before spire anyhow. so they are in right order.lol

I think you should add ocean heights and infinity tower. Ocean Heights is rising more quickly than princess and the torch despite the awkward floorplans. The contractor for infinity tower is the same as that for ocean heights so that should rise quickly once it gets going as well. Also you never know what might happen, for example princess tower could go on hold for a year which would affect the outcome of what gets done first.
Don't know if marina 106 is purely res or not.

Ocean Height is indeed faster then TP or TT and being shorter it should be completed before them, but it is not a contender for WTRB, being shorter then the current title holder (taller roof though).

yeah I guest they didn't like the idea of pentominium be the second tallest. So they add the cheap spire what a smack to the face from the people who love this tower.
