iicontrov3rdyx There's still some evidence for inclusion of the spire, so I wouldn't dismiss the possibility?

432 Park Avenue (1,396 ft) already surpassed Princess Tower (1,356 ft) and is currently the tallest residential building in the world. Central Park Tower will stand at 1550 ft without the spire, I don't know of any other residential building planned or under construction that will be taller.

I would hope for a height boost here as well, but I'm not so sure about Entisar- it is not even u/c officially yet. I would wait and see on that one- a lot can happen.
I have seen many buildings in Dubai that were prep or even had begun piling that eventually ended up cancelled.

You guys don't seriously think that developers in New York just come up with random building heights that they can 'boost' any time they hear about a taller one in Dubai?
It isn't getting taller, period. Obviously they're already maxing out their air rights.

It already is and always has been "around 500 meters". The final height will be between 472 and 478 meters, as we know so far.

True, however I believe air rights are to the highest occupied space, so the parapet and spire could go higher if they wanted, bust honestly it's fine how it is, ~475 meters to the roof is gigantic.

Wouldn't hold my breath on the spire. Not in any official imagery. Not even on Adrian Smith's website. I think everyone holding their breath for a 'surprise' is going to asphyxiate.

http://smithgill.com/work/central_park_tower/

These are the exact same renderings we've been seeing for a while now. No spire (and the architect isn't going to post anything that is 1) incorrect and 2) not sanctioned by the client).

It pretty much adds something to the imposing nature of buildings in that area. If there is anything interesting to talk about is the curvature top of the nearby building and it is very aesthetic to watch.
