Hi all.

Here is a shot I labeled from the 25th. The form has jumped a level since then but they haven't added new columns at the top yet.
Not quite 300 yet.



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

The Finished Floor of level 65 is at 303.55 meters, Assuming They will continue adding double level columns, after 3 more we will be over 300 meters.


Ray.

Fury, you seem like you know your shit. How tall will the core be by July 1st, and how tall in total with the cranes?

This is getting close to entering the top 100 tallest buildings in the world.

The fourth truss belt will be exactly at the point where the core has lost her corners.

Hi Igor.

1 - I have no idea. The core has only gained 6 levels in the last 2 months but I'm pretty sure the next 2 will bring a substantially bigger gain.
2 - I think Cul's diagram will give an acurate indication of the crane height.

Hi Cul.

Your diagrams are the best out there. Looks good to me.

Wait, so the completed tower will be the current height up to the top of cranes, TIMES TWO?!
WOW!

What will happen to the core once it grows higher. Will the core be reduzed in size? If so, how much and at what hight? Also, how will this effect construction speed? Thanks!

I could only find this diagram, it gives a basic idea. And the core changes will slow the speed down like the recent one has but not by too much.
