Tallest Skyscraper Dilemma-3 [Duplicate]

FILE - This Sept. 22, 2013 file photo shows a partial view of One World Trade Center, a skyscraper built at the site of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York. Soaring above the city at 1,776 feet, 104-story One World Trade Center is in contention with Chicago's Willis Tower for the title of America's tallest building. A committee of architects recognized as the arbiters on world building heights is meeting Friday Nov. 8, 2013 in Chicago to decide whether a design change affecting One World Trade Center's needle disqualifies its hundreds of feet from being counted, which would deny the building the title of nation's tallest giving the title to the 110 story Willis Tower at 1,450 feet.
