I remember Barnett originally was so adamant about building a 1500+ building to the roof and without "spires or crowns" as he said himself. Did he just stop caring?

Hopefully 225 won't end up any shorter which I doubt it will, and while it would be taller than Steinway at about ~1430 feet it would be hardly noticeable. 1500' isn't really a whole lot taller than 1397' either but at least it's a visible difference.
