Earlier, it always was 484m written in the threadtitle. Then, for a short time, even 489m and nox suddenliy 483m. How it comes?
There were design changes and it's been well discussed on this thread several pages back. You'll have to search for them yourself, though.

it was originally 490m above sea level.some people seem to forget most architects always measure there project in realtion to sea level. so then we found out the height of ground is 6m above sea level, thus 484m.
but recently the plans have been refined and 1m was taken off the 10m high parapet on top of roof.
thus RL489m or 483m above grd.

When finished, the two towers will face off against each other across the arrow straits separating Hong Kong Island from the mainland. Twin beacons to the continuing prosperity of the Fragrant Harbour.

The people working in this tower will probably have a really nice view of the HK skyline.

I haven't seen any of those renders accept the last one. They look brilliant, are they recent by the way, or I would've seen them already.
