I can see that. Actually, I've been comparing the Capital Market Authority Headquarter and WTC buildings to the completed small building in front of them (SAMBA). If you look at earlier pictures, you'll notice a huge difference especially in core and cladding progress.

Is it clear 400m roof height?

Cuz according to the SSP, the tower ~15m less than 400m.

Yes. When HOK first designed it, it was 76 story building with a height of 385m. Then Walter P Moore added another 4 stories to become 80 with a height of 400m while doing their structural engineering services, structural design and testing.

It's growing so fast.

Gorgeous building, and amazing Financial complex.
