What a fantastic set of pictures. Those supercolumn sections seem so short, but looking at them they must weigh plenty even so.

Yeah that image sort of gives a good idea just how far this one has to go really!

Will be cool to watch it go up in the next few years!

230m sounds pretty legit and possible by the current speed

I just noticed that if these plans are accurate, then it seems they are not going to start cladding before the end of the year. Its actually what I have expected. It is so complex that it will be some time until they will start working on it.

I think there'll be a lot of people on this site getting a "fat" when this ones done...including me

Seriously though, I think ST will have a fairly thin aspect ratio(height to width ratio)when it's completed.
Looking at the plan Nordscheife just posted, ST proper( not including the shopping area on the first 5 or so levels)
is approx 90 metres wide at the base, tapering to about 60 metres wide at the top, so bout an average of 75 metres wide with a height of 630 metres, it 's average height to width ratio is about 9:1 or about 7:1 from the base.
Just as a comparison the Sears Tower in Chicago is 442 m high and a width at base of approx 69 metres, which works out to a ratio of about 6.5:1.

Don't worry, when this thing is up, with its twisting shape and ENORMOUS SIZE, it'll be the envy of many!

And more pics.

Clearly they are still not satisfied with the result.

Is it dimming glass?! Or perhaps polarized?

I don't know when the pictures were taken, but would it be too much to ask for pics of the facade from the outside? :p
