so they plan to reach ground level in 2014

606m is the old height, it got increased to 636m. just articles get it wrong when they don't inform themselves.

The Power Of Roof Height

Nice to see a diagram showing what I consider to be the roof height of this building (the height to the top of the 'dome enclosure'). 610 meters is approximately 2,001 feet which makes this building a true megatall in my book to roof height. By the way I consider true supertalls to be 1,000+ feet in roof height and true megatalls to be 2,000+ feet in roof height. I know this is not the SSC distinctions but to all their own.

Great to see further preparations for the massive concrete pour as well.

Wow, thx for that massive update

Seems we're very close to the big pour! Steel is laid and they installed slides for the concrete .
But the slides are new to me, never seen that before at a project. Probably because the raft foundation will be very big.

Seen something like it before on a Chinese project recently, I think it was the R&F tower in Tianjin.

They said 400m+ and 350m+ I think. The fuss came after they found new masterplan renders, I'll try to find them again
