Still 351m is nothing to laugh at. The observatory at the top would be equivalent to 107 floors on this building's floor ratio. Also, it would be 11m higher than the Jin Mao observatory and about the same height as the upper deck of the Oriental Pearl Tower. The new observatory on Eureka would be higher than the roofs of John Hancock Center, Aon Center, and Trump Tower all in Chicago.

Nothing to sneeze at.
They are not just concept plans they are official renderings and plans taken from the planning application file! Of course there may be some alterations by the time it gets approved but for now these are the official plans for the tower:

Beyond1000: the top viewing platform of the communications tower appears to be about 15 metres below the pinnacle, so it will be about 335.5 metres (or 20 metres higher than Big John's obs deck).

Looks very modern compared with the original rendering....I like it.
Why is the floor construction progress so far behind compared with the core?

Thanks Grollo and Phi1ip for some correction.

I didn't know how the top would be. I hope they utilize the same cladding and dress it up a bit to make it look the same as the rest of the building.

At 335.5m that is 1100 ft off the street.

FYI the Aon center in Chicago is 1136 ft to the roof or 346.3m.

Eureka would then become the second tallest building if it were in Chicago after Sears.

yeah the 335m mark is the 2nd top level of the mast where the outdoor observation deck will be. The top of the mast will be 351m (1152 ft) but no one ,as yet, is really sure if you will be able to stand on this level. here's hoping though.

Cheers
