I don't know, and it's a bit tricky with the 3 last higher floors. But yes, it'll be around 390m.

Still level 89 at core top.

changed my mind, the two towers look stunning together, they kind of give the twin tower feeling

I get the feeling that this tower will be featured in an action style film like Mission Impossible. Has anyone seen the movie "Entrampment" with Catherine Zeta-Jones and Sean Connery, the Petrona Twin towers are featured there and they look dazzling

Oh and, does anyone know if the Jin Mao tower has been featured in a movie?

2IFC in Hong Kong was featured in the second Tomb Raider movie, while under construction. I don't remember for Jin Mao, I think not.

To think that Jin Mao was pretty grand by itself before this newbie came along. Wow!! Now, Jin Mao is losing a bit (just a bit) of its powerful effect on the skyline. This dosn't suddenly mean Jin Mao is any less of a building than before as it is a great scraper IMO, but it's all about relativity.

...and the huge zig-zagged bracing of WFC is bewildering. I haven't seen bracing like that since Chicago's John Hancock.
