No, they´ll have to remove the crane before they can finish it.

#great photos as always altinD,
#germantower- i think the 808m height sounds like a real posiblity it will be final height.
2,650feet is nice rounded off figure!
#FM 2258-its not even quarter way up ,let alone halfway.

cheers

yes. right below the white (now it is dirty brown) formwork panel. It has larger than normal white paint on both sides where a plate should be.

Burj Duboy is right. I checked the original size picture, and the base of the crane is visible there.

Holy crap. I think this monster is 200 meters about now. Am I somewhere near. I can imagine it's going to be 3 times that size. Amazing tower

I think "miss Shemp" might be closer than than you guys think. I'm thinkin, maybe the base of the crane has nothing to do with it, here's why...
Looks like they have formed the level above... and...

Look at the Plan section drawing:

[IMG]http://i3.************/15mjixg.jpg[/IMG]

They have followed this closely. Zoom in and look at level 40. If you count the levels in tier 4, starting at 34, going to start of tier 5 you get 42 but they call it 43. Perhaps level 40 is called 2 levels and is actually double height. Look at tier 7 starting at 64, same thing tier 8 starts at 75. but they call it 76, so maybe 73 is another double level. Tier 12 same thing. Tier 10 and 11 have something happenin' too.

Perhaps they will deviate from the drawing...

Koooooool tower Love it ...
