Hi all.

Great day for this structure.

I liked this thing the first time I saw some renders of it. It's been one I have been watching and saving pics of from the start.

Looks fantastic.

what i mean is, it wouldn't surprise me if they added some kind of extension on the mast to make it undisputably higher than the tokyo sky tree

I hope it is 618m because the Cantonese pronunciation of 618 sounds like "make money"

wow, from far pics I just thought it were some tubes going up. But now I see the spire has lots of stuff to it as well. Thnx todd.

I thought a couple of weeks ago it was confirmed that the height would be 611.01m. At least thats what someone posted here. We will see.

Wow, i can't believe that the spire is that thick. And is that external ladders?

once the green stuff comes off the lower part will look a bit thinner. I agree with u guys. The bottom part of the spire looks too fat.
