the poster says 415m for the R&F building, but the other thread says it will be 439m tall. Both show the same design though, which heigh is now more accurate?

This is not the R&F tower thread. The most recent height is 439m for the R&F tower.

439m is the final height. The project was revised upwards, it used to be 380m (roof) and 415m (spire). Now they removed the spire and added height to the main structure up to 439m. The design layout is the same though.

alright thats all what i wondered. i think the new size will work better for the skyline too. With the roof being higher it gives the skyline a better touch then maybe two buildings of a similar height. i like it. The sino-steel tower also has this very special design that may define the skyline when it is finished

With so many projects going on and planned, how much are leased? Hate to see many 'see through' towers like Beijing.

What are those tall machines in the pictures above? They look like pile drivers. Anybody know?

This design is so rad. It reminds me of Scandinavian art design.
