I read this thread everyday and i really look forward to seeing the new pics and progress, thanks to all the regular contributors.
Here ya go............





Thanks again to Altin D for the pics

And 824 would be a very good guess in my book - Im going 835.

Thanks Graham...really puts in perspective.

ZZ I came up with 824 after watching various video presentations and viewing the many diagrams.

But Its just my guess.....interesting to see who will get the closest.

Has anyone died yet during the construction process?...

Whats the safety requirements ?, are they ordered to wear safety harnesses and helmets ? I'd have so many harnesses I wouldnt be able to move.

Mr. Alloy = 1234m, that way I'll be disappointed no matter what! But for real, I'm going with ... 807.7m

*chimes in on guess*. As much as I'd LOVE to see the 1,011 figure be built in the end, for a more plausable guesstimate at this point I'll say... 888 meters!

By the way with all this... What does the winner get if someone's right lol? Free observatory ticket?

I'm revising my answer to a range of 804-813.6 meters.

(813.6m = 1/2 mile + 9m. Taipei 101 = 509m = 1/2 km + 9m.)

He gets a kick in the ribs with a steel toe boot and
a red hot poker in the eye.
Just kidding - he get's the "I know it all/I told ya so award" and that's nothing to sneeze at! lol.

A pool is a great idea.
Remember to copy n paste the list and add your guess.

If you win, I'll put your name on there for you. You can even put it in your signature, so everyone knows.
