The official height is still 174 meter, but with the recent growth it's more like 180 meter + but not yet 200 meter.

I think this height race is ridiculous, the TST will complete long before Shanghai that it could mean possible height change. In this time Sokor start soon quietly his Seoul 640 m skyscraper.

I just found an article in 2ch, about how the height extension was actually part of the design from the first. Apparently, itis designed to be extendable up to 640m without any additional cost to the original 65B yen budget.

They will once again have to change the height if they wanna become second tallest in the world. Seoul is going to build one which will be 640 meters. So should get 7 meters higher.

This is not a building, it's a tower. It does not have floors or walls. It's just a frame that gets put together like tinkertoys (the sections are all prefab at a factory). So of course it goes up fast.
