Don't be silly. It's exactly the same width as it is in plans and renders. When you look at a render, does it look impossible to achieve?

Of course it will make it 818 m. Do you see how this normal sized wing hasn't topped out yet? One side of the core will have a normal wing while the other two have stumpy ones.

I thought that they would need more time to reconfigurate the core formwork. Next reconfigurations are now 148 and 152? The other two remaining sides? And than all 3 sides the same till 156 where concrete stops? Look logical to me. Can anyone confirm

well if it has risen to lev145 or 531m, then the alternate way of measuring (from sub levels base slab -14.5m,then 545.4m would be correct.

Looks about right to me....although I don't edit pages on Wiki anymore and haven't had time to do so for many months.

Whoever did edit that page....it's pretty much spot on though....and yes it is at L147 this morning.

Also Cul...545.4m is not to the base of the building...it's from concourse to the pinnacle of construction....add another 15.2m to get the true height!
