Where does it say this will be 460m? On Wikipedia it says 440m and on SSP diagrams it says 442m.

The height increase was announced officially a few months ago. Wiki and SSP are just out of date.

The offical height is 441.8 m. Just confirmed today by the architects: TFP Farrells. I am thinking that the 460 figure was taken from sea level, which happens from time to time.

The 460m thing comes from this alleged diagram by Arup, maybe somebody should email Arup.


Or maybe this diagram is fake, just another big lie fabricated by a bored Chinese forumer.

Interesting that the core is 441.8 m. on that diagram. For now I still want to stick with the architect's statement. Hopefully I will be getting some detailed drawings in the future.
