When ST is completed, they'll all look similar in height from this angle.

with Oriental pearl Tower, that makes 5,, c'mon what's wrong with another 2500 footer? Or 700 some meters metric? Just something to make Burj not look like a big stick. Claiming the false oservation height, no roof.

earliest structural completion estimated to be late this year, or early next year. The claddings and internal furnishment will probably be completed in 2014, or latest by 2015.

^Don't forget, the crown alone is suppose to take 6 months, so I don't think this thing could even top out until late 2013/early 2014 at the absolute earliest. I remember a video saying the tower would be complete by late 2014, although these guys have been moving insanely fast, so that could be mid 2014. Can anyone confirm?

I meant the current height, not 632m. And it was just because of the angle in that one shot.

Tourists take photos amid heavy fog in Shanghai, east China, Jan. 14, 2013. Emergency response measures were adopted in many Chinese cities, where the air has held excessive levels of major pollutants in the past few days due to prolonged fog and smog. Heavy fog has caused highway closures and flight delays in several provinces. The elderly, children and those suffering from respiratory and cardiovascular diseases are advised to stay indoors to reduce exposure to polluted air. (Xinhua/Liu Xiaojing)
