Absolutely! I still remember fondly all the arguments about whether or not the Trizec (forget what they've re-named it to now) was going to be taller. Even years after construction, people still argued - in the days before the Internet, "official" numbers like this were hard to come by. Nowadays, we just come here and have measurements down (up?) to the inch.
