"Exalted space ≤ 550 meters of ultra-high-rise buildings"

so does that mean only 550m or even less is usable space inside the tower and the other 150m+ are crown? that would be quite sad.

That would be sad indeed. I really hoped we would see useable floors far above 600m and over 130 floors.

That also depends on the design of the crown, but on first hand it sounds like a waste of materials.

i just asked a native speaker and it indeed means "what height people can reach", so probably usable space that tops of with an observation deck and restaurant as seen in the renders (at least the pool tower one). It is quite sad, considering people can get above the hole in the SWFC.
for the other design it would be the whole crown being not usable. right after the last floor that has lights it would probably end with an observation deck or something. i really hope the numbers are not final, but "less than 550m" is quite concerning.

amazing, so the final design is chosen now, can't wait to see which one it is or even maybe a new one also the floor count makes me happy, so we can expect a roof height higher than shanghai tower, still a big crown or spire but not as extreme as i feared hearing the roof may end at 550m

China never stops to amaze me. The rest of the world hardly goes above 450 meters while China throws in one megatall after another. I think we can now begin to sing:

China
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothing you can't do
Now you're in China ........

China might even have a chance to have 10 towers of at least 2,000 feet in roof height by 2020. And to think China still doesn't have the tallest in the world. When they finally decide to go for the record it will be epic (hint: J220 Sky City).
Sorry I forgot about Kingdom Tower, guess we will have to wait.

Unless that 2km 220 storey tower happens, I don't see (well, IMO) the country claiming the world's tallest, Jeddah or Baku will have that honour but another megatall nonetheless with a confirmed height is good!

Hopefully they won't choose an ugly design this time, unlike Changsha and the one under construction in Tianjin.
