Thanks again Imre, and also all the other contributors.

I think this, when completed, will be the most beautiful supertall in the world aswell as being a masterpiece of engineering.

Forgive my ignorance, what are the blue boxes with numbers we see jutting out of the structure at various heights ? What is their purpose ?

I've wondered that as well...I believe they are dumpsters for waste materials. I could be completely wrong though. Does anyone know for sure?

[QUOTE=beyond 1000;15223119]James, it looks that BD is truly at floor 150. This is to say that the walls of 149 are poured upto the ceiling of 149 which is the floor of 150. Officially speaking the walls of 149 must be poured into the forms that are presently upto 150. If the forms are still hollow or unpoured, then BD is not structurally higher than CN. What I mean to say is the forms are not part of the structure itself. Still visually speaking BD looks to be at 1822 ft or 555m.

Can anybody confirm that the forms upto 150 as we see are poured?

If it is not at 12:00 then it is at 11:59:57


just to quote what I wrote about BD possibly surpassing CN. It would be official if the forms of 149 are poured to reach the floor of 150 that it would officially pass CN.
