CTBUH.org has it on 636m too though and also features articles stating 636m, so well both can happen and i really hope the taller one is the right one

It is going to be very fun to watch this site transform over 2013 and 2014. Then by 2015 we will certainly see both the megatall and supertall on this site rise into the sky.

One of the most interesting phases of the construction for me. I wonder if I still have a chance to win that beer

I say those rigs are for foundation and we will see pouring of concrete slab around january/february 2013. If I'm right I will get free beer

Let's see: 4 months for digging, 3-4 months for concrete slab (with curing), 4 months for underground floors. Sounds feasible.

As I understand. This will be purely a commercial tower. No residential apartments
