I leave it up to the viewer to decide.

Yep, I said ~420m. at frame structure top (= bottom of level 93), I think your calculation is more accurate. And yes, outer vertical beams are a bit higher. It's the final round...

Anyway, we can say it's equal to Jin Mao, but looks much more massive

Is that a UFO? A spy plane? A fifty-foot wide kite?

so I have a question I've saw that we estimated the tower to be at ~420m for floor 92...my question is will 93'rd floor establish the new height record in Shanghai ???...because the "~" sign might just not give us the record...
Or is someone shure of a height for the tower not..and not an approximated one ???

It has more than proved itself already & such a contrast to Jin Mao. 2 modern greats, so close and so different.
