Looks like each one of those steel sections is custom made as the pitch changes all the way up.

From the appearance of the core it seems that this will be filled with floors. The core has doorways for each floor. Will this really be a TV tower, or a supertall with like 140 floors topped by TV antennas? That would be super cool if it really was a skyscraper instead of a TV tower, or am I high????

SWFC will have highest ob deck @ 472m. guangzhous roof top @ 450m will be highest outdoor.The gravity machine will reach 500m high which will be also highest public ob deck for a few seconds and then back down to 450m.lol
fastferrari- the towers base measures 54m across, middle section reduces to 17m dia and top widens to 35m dia.

50M of space shot? WTF? That is like going up 12 office-storey and down again. I will only take this gravity thing over my dead body!


Anyway, its really time BD do somthing, it loses both highest indoor and outdoor
obs deck despite being like more than 200M taller than this tower and 300m taller than SWFC!
