True, but 600' figuratively raises the bar for Austin. Just an additional 27 feet higher...It shouldn't really matter to me, but if it didn't, I wouldn't be logging on here several times a day. Its frustrating in a very minor way when developers stop short of a significant milestone, 39 floors instead of 40, 573' instead of 600', 683 instead of 700', and 6X so close to 900'. Technically inaccurate as it may be, I choose to round up just for the hell of it anyway. Build a 980 room hotel and I'll call it 1000 rooms. If those extra 20 people show up for a room and come after me, I'll stop I suppose.
