It would be unusual to call tenders for one contractor to build 3/4 of the tower up to 320m and then have a second contractor construct the rest.
If the 'new-and-unimproved' height is indeed 320m then it will be slightly shorter than The Index (327m).
God, that would suck. This is beautiful and it definitly needs to stick out.

I love this tower. If I don't see this tower getting built I will be crushed. This is really the most beautiful tower proposal I have ever seen.

Lets all be optimistic.

Is it common practice for all those piles (rebar?) to be not covered/encased like this while the project is on hold?? Some are covered/encased here, but clearly, there are quite a lot that are not......
