Great plan, thx for posting!

70m wide at the base and 138 floors up to 598m, that's just awesome!

Are the ~498.000 m2 the useable space in the tower?

From looking it looks like it could be the 729m figure, but when i am home tonight i will calculate it with the pixels if no one did it by then.

whole building 2087 pixels. whereas 598m are 1711 pixels. so 2087 pixels are 729,413m. the accuracy lies by two pixels which is about +0.6 to -0.6m, because i counted the ground and the line of where the building is exactly 598m was two pixels wide. So 729m seems to be the height for sure, actually i was surprised i got 729m instead of 730m, didn't think it would be that accurate, but after all it was a big picture and counting the ground pixel only pushed it up by about 40cm.

tl;dr: diagram 8 posts above is 729m to spire

~where the big yellow crane is standing on the left site i would say. the area isn't really big for such a tall building.

You can already see finished rebar cages for the piles in the bottom of the latest picture. It is only a matter of weeks or even days until this can be moved to U/C !

yes, we're extreme close to U/C! rebar cages are always the best sign for a very near start!
