Seen as the 400+ u/c thread is as good as dead, i'll probably post updates here for now.

enjoy

I think if you look closely, you can still spot some progress on the crown. Comparing the first and last picture, you can see the core in the first picture is covered with steel structure, almost like they are building tiny floor plates.



Also i think the crown clearly changed design. Below is the old design for the crown. As you can see, they have already built 3 more floors on top of the mechanical floors, where as in the original design there should only be one.

Not sure if the height will increase though, i think someone has already posted here some weeks ago the base of the crown is already higher than what it should have been in the original design.

A more dated picture, but still really nice.

It's great but until the crown is complete it reminds me of a painful tooth awaiting a crown replacement.

^The crown may also differ from renders and plans, considering the core and metal structure inside are different. It could even be a few metres taller...

Would be cool if the developers decided to try to make ST a smidge taller than Ping An.

I highly doubt that. 30m of extra crown would be significant, and would probably require the whole tower be redesigned for the height increase, so if they are going to build it taller, then they probably planned it before the tower even started, and have somehow kept it a secret. Alternately, they redesigned a higher crown so that the wind load was the same as the previous design.
Also, Ping An has a spire, if Shanghai Tower increases to just above 660m, then obviously Ping An will simply have a small spire increase.
Plus, Zhongnan Centre is considerably taller than both, so it would be pointless to increase the height just to be the tallest when it will be the tallest in China until Ping An is finished any way.
A 3m height to beat Tokyo Sky Tree wouldn't be too surprising, making it the second tallest structure on earth when complete.

True, but look at the inside superstructure now and then the plans and renders.

Clearly the crown design has changed. If we assume the same height of the curtain wall above the core inside, as you want to hide it for cosmetic reasons, then the height of this building is greater than 632m.

It could also be that our estimates of the current height are inaccurate.

Fortunately we only have a few weeks to wait to find out.
