Height Confirmed

I visited the construction site today and viewed the blueprints:

Height to top of screen wall: 173.4 m/569 ft.
To roof: 171.35 m/562.17 ft.
To highest floor plate (49): 160.22 m/525.67 ft.

It seems that they chopped a few floors off the original design.

Thank you for the update Vito.


Pano - the "flying forms" are on both the far left and right. These are teflon (?) coated and form the bottom of the form for a floor.


A second Concrete Pump ?


One of the "flying forms" in use.


465 N Park - a few more shots.

Your tension may vary - note the different sized rebar on the inner and outer faces.

The braided copper is for lightening protection.
