If you look at the concrete core it seems to me i can see the mechanical floors for the next belt trust, which is at arround 480m if i'm not wrong.
By my diagram it has 492 - 495m. (five or six floors above mechanical floors)

I'd say building, the tallest structure is still Canton tower with it's 601 meters.

With the steel on top it should be ~500m, concrete at ~495m

If we need skyscrapers so bad then why not make them more lean and refined, (which is all achievable) not bulky, massively over engineered hulks, designed by paranoid architects and engineers with 9/11 still fresh in their minds.
It is beginning to happen, just not so much in China.
If you can't see the sense in that then you've no hope in Architecture.

Seriously. If you people want to start a discussion of the environmental impact of skyscrapers, the various developments of Shanghai, the degree of possible over-building in China, the likelihood of Bigfoot, or any number of other various off-topic nonsense, find another thread. This thread is for discussion of ST.

There is some way left to catch up with Guangzhou TV tower.

How long before Shanghai tower catches up with Taibei tower?

We are seeing these buildings coming up in China because that is what the end customer wants. If a developer wants an uber green skyscraper, then the engineers and architects design one. If they want a building that is a mix of both status and sustainable design, you get something like the Pearl River Tower or ST. This tower was designed to please the people that are building it, not you or any of us here. As an architect, you design for what the customer wants, not what you or anyone else wants. We will continue to see buildings like this until the Chinese market mandates entirely green buildings. That's just how the game works.

As for me, I just got off of a co-op with Lockheed Martin and did work a couple of years ago with Perkins+Will here in Boston. With a 3.7 GPA and a dual degree in sight for next year, I think I have it safe in architecture if I decide to go with that. If I change my mind (which happens all the time), civil engineering and med school are both options.

So, you should be active in threads of your "lean and refined skyscrapers".

If it's over 500m it will be about the 70th stucture to reach that height. And the fifth building over 500m by total height.
