He's just a bit too much enthusiastic, but he's relatively new to the forum so that can be expected. Being on this forum for a longer time he'll learn more about how skyscrapers are built. He just needs more time. How many of us needed more time when we were new (I certainly did, and a lot )?

As for the question of height, we know that the top occupied floor will be at 472 meters or 1550 feet. I expect this to be 500-510 meters tall. That would mean the roof would be 28-38 meters above the top occupied floor (not top floor, there are usually mech floors above the top occupied floor). This is well within expectations because, for comparison, 432 Park has a roof 29 meters above its top occupied floor, 1WTC has a roof 35 meters above its top occupied floor and 157 has a roof 31 meters above the top occupied floor

All of this info comes from CTBUH's skyscrapercenter

^ yea, I'm a newbie also and very enthusiastic. I'm trying to catch up with all of you freaks.

Thanks for that info Kanto! I agree that this tower could reach at least 500m. It will be close and if it ends up being 490m.... i hope Mr. Barnett will just throw in the additional measly 10m to make it 500m.

I don't know why, but I've just got the feeling that this will be around 1,700 ft. Usually I'm not very optimistic about heights, but I've just got a feeling that this will be taller than we're expecting.

Me too!
There's something of my hidden "inside" that constantly urges me to have a greater expectation at least out of this baby. I am not expressing though!
But there's another part, too, that alerts me of the imminent disappointment!!
Whatever but either too good or too bad will come out of this, but it's not going to be anything normal.

They are demolishing buildings so the building can be built. So yes... it does need more area to be built if that's what you're asking.

Actually this is nothing new. They have been there for many months. I posted pictures of them a while ago.

Still no visible progress.

Just to clarity however, even though they've been there for months, have they actually been moving or are they stagnant?

I do believe there is movement, and there's a new security booth. Will go by in another week or two to check again, but demo did seem to finally be underway.

Latest excavation permits were disapproved, looks like we are going have to wait a little while longer.
