Why not just add tiny 2 meters = 6.5 feet and then we have a supertall building?

Only two more rows of glass until we get a look at the glass for the mechanical floors with those gray vents

Because that would cost millions more dollars and even the people who will work in this tower won't care if it's officially a "supertall building" or not.

Especially since "supertall" is a definition for this blog. Nothing else, it is not a standard, nothing internationally (or nationally, in any country) recognized. So who cares?

A new glass row will start soon, presumably tomorrow. I can't wait to see the vents being installed with the glass!
