CTBUH changed the specs.

A redesign of the top to add floors inside the crown rather than just space.

I am unconvinced the structure will be only 632m but I am in the distinct minority.

It will top out soon, so we will find out.

Photos cannot recreate the feeling when you really stand in front of one of these monsters. There is no way you can feel the same by looking at any photo, even the best photo. You really have to be there for yourself.

Nice pics but couldn't you put them all in one post?
P.S. I love the crown already even though it's not completed yet

No I couldn't. As a new user I seem to be having certain limitations.

I have still some more snaps to be put here yet. Will do that the day after tomorrow, because I will be quite busy with my job until then...

You can see on the already published pix that I also did not have time to edit them yet. Still some cuts due to the stitching process that I have not yet removed. But I did not want to wait too long until the pix might be out of date, so I thought I will register at skyscrapercity today and put them here as they are, incomplete and imperfect.

I was blown away when standing next to a building barely 200 meters tall, I literally can't imagine how it would feel with this.

The neck begins to hurt after a while. I was 400m high in the SFC sky bridge, and I still had to look UP.
