What page exactly? WPS appears more refined in just about every way.

Lit indeed.

A new drawing of this popped up on the Chicago diagram, and it appears to place it around 1,100 feet.

Mechanical penthouse/screening could nudge the 950' height figure (that's ALWAYS been bandied about for this tower) just over the 1,000' threshold, but 1,100' is pretty unlikely, unless there's a specific height increase or they tack on a spire of some sort.

Artistic license, there's no facts to back that up.

I hope this happens (over the 1,000 foot mark, or at least over 300 meters.) Don't they almost always release these initial figures for top of the highest occupied floor?

I disagree with you on that. Wolf Point South has odd proportions to me.

OCS will be finished before WPS is even started so why the argument?

Both haven't even started yet, so I find it comical that you have both timelines drawn up to perfection

Speculation and giving opinions about future projects is what goes on around here...

Given his username this was a prime opportunity for a "Donnie, you're out of your element!"

I just noticed that in the diagram of this website it says this tower is 1100 ft tall. Is that a mistake or what? need information please!

Artistic license, I wouldn't pay attention to that too much.

Height of top floor will be 950 ft per released elevation, and with the crown and mechanical the structural height should (hopefully) crest about 1000 ft.

Will it be considered a supertall if the crown is about 984 ft? Sorry I'm a skyscraper rookie still

At 984' it will measure out at 300 meters, so internationally yes it would be considered a supertall as long as a portion of the tower crosses that threshold and is not a broadcast antenna.

In the US though, it's typically not considered a supertall unless it is 1000 ft or more. That's only a difference of 16 ft (4.9 m), so it really isn't that big of a deal but I suppose it depends who you talk to.

I think we can all agree that 984 ft is a supertall it's just more logical.
