Very Nice.

That's a great update there. Only 193 meters though? The Tower looks like it's a supertall already. Those buildings around it are so short.

Yes but one thing you have to remember is this is currently one of the most complicated constructions. The pillars aren't perfectly vertical, they are at an angle.

I am pretty amazing that this will be the 2nd structure in the world to surpass CN tower, follow by Mecca tower, chicago tower and finally Russia tower



Can't imagine CN drop from first to fifth position in just 4 years

I got this information from skyscrapers.cn. Some of the members there are actually working on this TV tower project.

Hopefully if the prosposed PAGCOR tower (655meters) in Manila will get started this year, then CN tower will drop to the sixth position. But this TV tower is so sexy, I love the design so much copared to other towers.
