cheers todd, most detailed pic of spire so far... those platform sticking out of spire look so much like the gravity ride.

Yup, that's what I say that we better trust serious, updated sources only. Emporis isn't.

Yeah. That site doesn't look worthy enough about details. In fact, no changes yet to any section as far as I can see.

By looking at this picture, I believe there is more to come. Diameter difference is too much between these two levels. I believe there will be another level that will be a little bit wider than the upper one.

All we can do is wait.
I think we cant be sure until they remove the green scaffolding or if they confirm a T/O.

WOW, WHAT A CLOSEUP. theres actual 8 levels in there with railings.?
as for more height we will see. to me ive scaled it and its bloody close to 610m. but if it is 618m, then it makes sense for another rise

the pic from the Guangzhou offical local media newspaper :Yangcheng wanbao(Yangcheng Evening News)

from the pic we can see the tv tower will have 5 zones

A zone 0.0~32.8m

B zone 84.8~121.8m

C zone 147.2~168m

D zone 334.4~357.2m

E zone 376~462.2m (the outdoor desk basic height is 462.2m ,not 450m,true or false,its uncertainty)

if the antenna still have 160.3m height.so the final height is 462.2+160.3=622.5m!~oh~oh!~??

Well, the antenna doesn't rise from the tallest point of the E Zone, right?

ok heres diagram. guys, i could be wrong,. but all works out.
ive scaled the really detail photos of antenna.
notice the level just below red/white mast has 8 levels. this is lucky for chinese. this is why i dont think there will be anymore height popping up.
thanks to venisky for helping me with my accuracy
ive extended new height of ribbed structure to 462m.
i still have main spire at 80m tall, then the additions above.
the highest part you can stand is 610m./2000ft up!
