That's surely only the first spire segment we see in posting #668, not one whole spire. And it looks like 1-2m in diameter to me - it's not a tiny "no-spire" like the almost invisible flag pole to the left, for comparison.

Spires are basic elements of the design, antennae only added for transmission purposes.

As of today, the spire is 4 times higher then what shown on the latest picture. No (spire) progress on the other tower.

That was a simple scaffolding platform, actually there are two of them.

The spire on the South tower looks pretty much done, I think the diamond part has been removed from the design long time back cause it seams wasn't in the render on the project board, just some kind of small platform like on the very top.

The spire on the North tower has started as well.

On this pic by Imre from 30 Jan 2007, the "diamonds" are on the project board. So has the board been changed meanwhile?

Actually I was referring to an older design that had them somewhere in the middle.

i thought spires are not considered in the choice if a building is UC or TO. So wouldnt it be topped out because the spire works started?
