I have an impression the top of the crown is a lot flatter than that. Not sure.

I haven't really been following construction of this skyscraper. Judging by the second and third picture of hkskyline (post 19884) it looks like the building is partly "empty" on the inside (without floors). Is that right or just an optical illusion?

yes, it's probably indeed T/O now. Crown isn't finished yet but it has reached its highest point i would say.

Shanghai Tower is -almost- Topped Out; And i think we should change the "U/C" into "T/O" or not yet?

That's right, there's a gap between the inner facade and the outer facade.

Will there be an official statement regarding the final height of the building? I'd expect that, who knows? Maybe they went ahead an surpassed SkyTree by a meter
