Agree, currently ~20 meters left to top out. So, I say June will be the topping out date. The exterior ribbing will probably reach the core in July.

I don´t think it will be topped out any time soon, as they´ll still have the spire to add.

i think topped out means concrete construction. yes the spire will be added much later. probably after ribbing is completed.
i didnt realise how significant this tower is?
Its going to over take CN Tower as worlds tallest tower on completion!
CN has had title since 1976.
congrats guangzhou

It's a nice tower, but will you be able to see anything from its top? Just look at the air pollution in the pics!

The very top of TV Tower is 610 meters but the highest observatory is at 454 meters. The bottom is 60 meters wide. So the ratio is 454:60 or 30:4 or 10:1.3
