I am presuming that the roof of the Torch is below 300 meters, and if that is the case it will stall there for long till the thing on top will be build, long enough for all those other towers to surpass it.

Read, I was talking about reaching the supertall status (going over 300 meters), not about topping out.

Are you sure this won't reach 300m to roof though?

I'm not sure, but 37.5 meters for the LED display thing plus the spire seams too short.

Plus 82 is the total number of floors, while the number tags show only the number of the floors above the podium.

I'm counting the floors by the renders. Don't know if they're accurate or not but if they are then this has about 14 or 15 floors to go.

I pretty much doubt that but will see (or I should go and take a look how the first floors build over the podium were labelled)
