Yeah but you have the spire on the stratosphere that also acts as a Cedar Pt version of the Power Tower (if youve been to cedar point, you know what I'm talking about) They could put a 500ft pole on it and have 4 seats on each side of the spire, so 16 people can be shot to the top of the spire,, but instead of 1800ft, we're talkin 2600ft,, and a money maker.

ST will have an crown, not an antenna/spire. But there won't be an OB at the top of it.

Nothing, just a rain water collection system. It is not a "cladded antennae to add height". It is an architectural element. This building would look pretty bad if they lopped off everything above the top floor. The same can be said about alot of buildings with spires. Look at the Chrysler building, for example. Wouldn't be as good looking if they stopped at the "roof". Jin Mao, the Burj, Al Hamra, and the Shard are other great examples. Architects don't design for height, they design for aesthetics and functionality.

Just note, anyway, I had not enough data to calculate with 100% precision the real size, so if you just need some approximate idea of their size this might be enough.
Otherwise please don't take in count what I wrote here.

Another unresolved point is: will they reduce the number of window panes or the width of the panes only, since, while climbing up, the external perimeter gets narrower (=shorter)?
In my model I choose the second solution for time saving reasons, and I've seen some 'official' renders of the crown cladding where the width of the panes is evidently shorter than the panes placed at lower levels, but it's not enough to state the real thing will come out that way
I believe you are correct. The line between each pane of glass lines up at a certain point with the pane of glass on the lower row, and that point is the same for all the windows. If there were a different number of panes on some rows, then each window would line up at a different point with the previous row and gave the glass a "random" appearance. However, in the photos, the windows are all lined up very neatly.

Interesting story on Marshall Strabala, Chief Architect of the Shanghai Tower in the Feb. 27, 2013 edition of Pacific Rim Construction magazine, a Hong Kong-based trade magazine.

The article features some great recent images of the Tower; describes Strabala's impressive background -- including designing three of the world's 10 tallest buildings; covers the planning, creativity and knowledge that went into the Shanghai Tower's incredible design; and, comments on how his experience designing these previous "supertalls" was applied with this latest facility.

Strabala also is Design Partner and Founder of 2DEFINE Architects.

Possible. High winds coming in off the Desert the past two days and dust storms in other parts of China.

They don't last long, though. 3 hours, a day at most. It's calm and clear here now.
