This tower has gone through so much in delays and setbacks since it's inception. It truly is a marvel to see it rising and nearing completion after all this time. It's looking great, really what you see is what you get looking at the renders and the tower itself.

I think a bit higher. Top of poles seems to be at floor 101, it's now topped at ~480m.

My estimation:



Maybe right, maybe wrong

It's going so fast, it's almost a shame that we can't watch it grow anymore very soon.

But it looks fantastic of course!
