ive worked out by scaling. the towers ribbing reaches 280m, while core another 100m or so. so not long to 400m. simply amazing structure.
will be one of the world great towers.

i'm guessing around 25m wide at the most narrow point? quite impressive for something that goes much higher (and wider) above that point.

The progress of the tower is bigger that I thought before. It has a tremendous progress.

this tower is incredible even though it wasn't my fave out of the proposals for the site i've grown to love this tower and the progress is impressive and will it top out faster then anything to be considered the tallest?
