Very nice pictures indeed. Especially the first one.
Canīt imagine how the tower will look like when fully cladded.

Great pics today guys....thank you!

More news:
Wing C levels 107 & 108 are still on hold due to a design change.
L155 & L156 mech levels will take 7 months to kit out fully!
Elevator delivery will be 5 months delayed due to other works slow progress (due to cladding delay)
L155 & L156 have been raised in height again by a total of 3.4m
.....and best of all....

OMG suddenly the 1000m mark doesn't seem unrealistic with another height increase :P

I'm sorry to burst your bubble my friend but I think 20m-30m more, is about all we can hope for at this late stage.

If/when I get the schematics through I'll post them here for all.

COULD...being the operative word....nothing yet with any figures, so it's just my interpretation...it could be just half a meter so I'll save the excitement 'til later!

Precisely

That's exactly what should happen. Save your excitement for official press releases and other company documents so that speculation doesn't get too carried away. That's the important thing.

Just think

There are people out there that know how tall this will actually be,the rest of us are clueless lol So when will the official height be revealed,when it is completed? I guess they don't want to deal with another Chrysler Building incident,but the reality is,there is nothing out there competeing with it,except the ones in the planning stages.
