It's approx. 300 meters and design is more important than heigt imo too

I read on a site that they are building an extra floor, so that explains why I wrote 300.

if height is less important than design why would you add an extra 3 metres to the building? -_-

AND why would they build an extra floor when many of the apartments below still remain unsold? =_='' smart economics. i think its a great building, never said the design sucked or anything... i'm just picky on the numbers =D

They haven't added an extra floor, I'm not sure quite why this conclusion was reached - nevertheless, 300m sounds better than 297.2m

Moving right along, more gold this morning:


And for those who would like a more complete shot of the building:

300m is the number often quoted because it is exactly 300m high from sea level.
