Such a pity they aren't expressing the dramatic cross brassed structure in the same way that the Bank of China tower in HK does. Hopefully this will be revealed at night.

looking at the top of front corner of SWFC in this picture... is it really starting to taper now or is it just appearing to me?

I think you are right, but the concrete in that corner is doing it too from halfway the tower when you have a close look!

Look at this simple pic, you can see where tapering starts:

The render, on which you can see this is the way it is.

SWFC is actually going a bit faster now, but the speed isn't much slower on BD.

the building is starting to taper, if you look at the concrete, the edge does not look as sharp as it did towards the bottom. There was a picture in the last page or so, where it was from the other side, and you can see the taper of the building starting to rise.

So how high is it? I counted around 47 floors. So around 220m? I counted 37 to the steel frame.
