I think you're right Vormek. Shanghai Tower has not any spire or something like that! An observation deck at 632 m! Only Kingdom Tower in Jeddah is taller...but it will be so only in 2016 (if everything goes well)

8? I thought it was 4 that was supposed to be bad luck.

so the mega columns are at 84m, that's as high as the tallest building in my city. Crazy!
