So it means we are getting first 700m-ish building?

Well I assumed the 729m height is definitive (isn't it?). So assuming that height and the fact that roof is at 600m the design with the huge spire is very probable.

I made a guess on a design not a height

We've these 729m quite long already, but no notion if that's the final height.

well all designs we saw were over 700m, so i think we are rather safe to make the assumption for now

Very comforting thought that a 600m + tower will rise here!

I can also not really tell what design and how tall.
I tried to find out, also asked a good chinese friend to Baidu it but no result.
Picture from this morning as usual, not much change, right middle new crane parts arrived, for the mall.

Just because they are building does not mean that they are rich.
5% of chinas growth is based on the construction. If they stop to build
they will have a huge problem and we all can go for a long long holiday.
It is a little complicated also with the money and where it comes from.
Perhaps you try to read it up by yourselves, actually not the topic here but interesting
how it works.
Now they are still building and that is good so we can enjoy it.
As usual the pictures from this morning and fortune plaza direction.
Beautiful weather and good air.

This is going to be a fun tower to see go up. All the designs are good but I want to see one with the highest occupiable floor.

That is an epic development - will this be taller than the Burj Al Dubai?

That design is awesome. We can count 135~ floors to the start of the hole. Easily 750m+.
