The original 6 World Trade Center building had 8 stories?

Many websites say that the original 6 World Trade Center building had 8 stories, but according to this Wikipedia page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...d_Trade_Center), the building seems to only have 7 stories besides the underground mall.

The Sears Tower (I refuse to call it anything else) is described as having 110 floors but I think it really has 108.

I have been wondering about that but have been too embarrassed to ask. I grew up believing the Sears tower had 110 stories however most sources I find say 108.
The Willis Tower's website claims 110 stories.

The 2 extra floors are in the elevator box, so they usually aren't included in Sears Tower's floor count.

6 World Trade Center had 8 total floors, starting at the street level.

The problem is that the actual visible building has only 7 visible floors starting at the Plaza Level, but there is an additional lower level on the Concourse Level. While this section is at the same level as the Mall at the World Trade Center, it isn't actually connected to the mall in any way, and instead originally had a direct entrance/exit on Vesey St., as can be seen in these images:


You can see the seven upper floors, and the lower street level doors of 6 WTC.

The original 4, 5 and 6 WTC were ugly buildings and felt like afterthoughts for the rest of the complex.
