this is the tallest office building in the world with the prospect of actually getting tenants. taipei 101 has had a lot of trouble (i think) getting tenants.

^it is true, they sent the concrete straight from level 0 to 492m in a hose thing, like pumping water up.

the one in burj dubai didnt pump it up straight to 601m
