We still don't have a reliable source on the height, correct?

595m, confirmed. The height may be increased a few meters later though, but 595m is the current planned height.

Who's the source though? Can you give me a link to a statement by the officials? I'm still seeing stats ranging from 485 to 605m all over the web.

Well we have this reliable source who's been correct in all of the height changes, his username is DreaM1981.

Check these posts: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=737

and this:

It is confirmed to be 595m by an insider source, though the height may be increased in the future.

Does anyone know if the sound of the construction reaches the nearby worship place?

(sorry I don't know what this worship site is called)
