Guangzhou TV news said that WEST TOWER will top out by Dec 30, maybe though they're referring to just the core.

Well, going by the pace of the Burj Dubai - a floor every three days, they could only pour 3 more floors tops by the 30th. Is that actually enough to top the core out?

It was on floor 98/99 as indicated by this picture from a week ago.

if you're comparing floor progress of both towers, west tower easily beats burj dubai, west tower rising at enormous pace.

I've heard that this tower is going up by the pace of one floor every two days!

from skyscrapers.cn and I found a piece of news(12.16) about that

广州西塔将于本月30日封顶
位于珠江新城的广州西塔建设工程正在抓紧进行,目前西塔已经施工到第98层,将于本月30日实现主体结构封顶。

广州西塔楼高103层,总高度437。5米,是中国第三高楼。目前西塔已经建到第98层,玻璃幕墙安装到第70层。西塔外型独特,结构复杂,建造难度非常大。其中超高性能混凝土超高泵送成为世界级施工难题,为此施工方通过反复试验,研制出超高强、均匀性好、便于泵送的C100超高性能混凝土,并在今天(16日)将其一次性泵送到411米高度,创造了同等强度等级混凝土超高泵送的世界纪录。预计西塔将在本月30日实现主体结构封顶。(记者钟兴兴)

this news says it will top out by Dec.30th(maybe just the core)

I’m sure it is more than 400m now coz this news says they pumped concrete to over 411m,which happened on 12.16.

anyway..it is just predicted..
