It's now at level 98, but all those last levels have "custom" heights, hard to be accurate.




Scaling different models gives me an average value of ~450m, like yours. It's now higher than Sears roof and 2m less than Petronas
So 4th tallest?




Edit: I scaled all last levels, that is:

- Level 98 floor = 450m
- Level 99 floor = 461.5m
- level 100 floor (upper skybridge) = 472m
- Level 101 floor = 479m

Top of building being 492m.

Good ole China smog. Get to breath it every day. Unbelievable what they're doing to the environment.

Looking close to the future skybridge structure, it looks like it's supported by a temporary bracing?

Wait and see...
