Actually there are 2 spires side by side. One of them is shorter. So it looks as if there is just 1 spire.

You can see the spires in these renders:

It is complete and open.

Several restaurants have already opened and some forumers have went inside and took some photos.
Here is one such photo: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...8#post26812838.

From this angle, the tower looks very beautiful, elegant and exciting !

I have to say both spires finally harmonize with the tower and fit very well in the top part. Well, thats what this pic says to me now !
