Maybe someone involved in the project that visit this thread and propably posts from time to time, can arrange a visit on top for you and me, considering the contribution to spreading awareness and documenting the rise of the tower.

Maybe is really someone out there who can do something ... I can free my schedule at anytime.

No... I'm sure they have foresight. I mean, they must have some foresight for a project like this. I'd assume that they know exactly when it's going to pass 508 meters, and they have a press conference arranged. I'm sure they also have a press release written, and probably have had it written for some time.

Also, I think Sky Tower may have jumped the gun a little bit with that figure. Last I heard it was at 500.

It doesn't have to be that top person. Someone from the consultantant or project managment companies, can arrange that as well.

... plus I have never wear a hard hat so it will be great the first ever to be associated with BD.

we have a problem here that we have ignored gladlly that the tower is rising fast ..but the fact is that we should of had some mech floors or this one is the mech floor and it will take 2 weeks to be completed so we'll have to wait some more for the record result (WTB)

Great photo, but I think it's a fake. There's a big section that appears to be finished in that photo, that in fact is not. I'm not sure what tier it is.

That view is breathtaking. Just imagine hosting a party up that high, that would be great. If you take a girl up to show her that view you're getting laid for sure.
