IMHO, we should remove feet altogether and stick to the International System of Units.

If you write ~305 meters than you can say ~1,000 feet.
Conversely, if you write ~300 meters than you can say ~984 feet.
Doesn't seem too hard to me to fix.
as a mathematician i do not approve of this statement there is nothing to fix. unless a website states it will be over 300m, we can have an accurate number, but if the approximately comes from a user on this forum it doesn't make sense to have a weird feet number there instead of also an approximated number.

NEW YORK | 225 West 57th Street | 472m | 1550ft | 88 fl | Demo

to

NEW YORK | 225 West 57th Street | 381.9m (not sure if we round up or down) | 1253ft | 88 fl | Demo

first post i could find about that information is at around post 2098. the thread however is a mess, so many comments took me a while to find what the final height now seems to be.

Wait a minute. If the site is really for the j100 then there is no real progress there. The first picture was taken in July and second one apparently recently so I can't see much progress here.

i think this would be more accurate for the current information:

DUBAI | Entisar Tower | 500m+ | 1640ft+ | 111 fl | Pro

to

DUBAI | Entisar Tower | ~520m | ~1700ft | 111 fl | Pro
