I love the design of this building. However, the spire is a joke. It's almost a third the size of the entire building. To give this building a supertall status should be a crime.

Carlos should get a special 'wise-photo-master-moderator' status here, due to the frequency and the quality of his updates.
He's got my vote.

Getting close to 820ft/250m which will be the roof height, so possibly somewhere around or approaching 800ft up. Someone else may be able to say exactly.

Thanks for posting the pics N.J.C.

It appears to be even taller than 811 feet to the roof considering that Conde Nast is 806 feet. I'd say that the lower roof is 811 feet than the top of the higher (smaller) roof will be roughly 900 some feet which will also be the height of the final glass/steel crown...

The height of the higher roof is no more than maybe 850-870 feet. I think theres about another 80-100 feet left.
