On 12 Dec. 2007 I went to the city centre and took these pics.
1. (3x zoom)
The tall building on the far left, Jingguang Centre, is 208m.
And, no doubt, CCTV IS 234m.

2. (no zoom)

Now there's no reason why it should not be finished in time for the Olympics, at least exteriorwise.

I think CCTV should change their logo into one that represents this building.

I know the connection is still commencing, but would it be safe to say CCTV is topped out? If you look at the sides it doesn't look like its going to rise higher.

The answer is no, topped out means the entire sealed roof area, down to the last building structural element, (exceptions, glass retaining or mullion systems projecting above sealed roofline, and spires or antenna complex(s)

However, these exceptions are usually secondery structures, and not the primary structure, therefore when the primary structure is complete, (IE sealed roof) it is considered topped out....
