Because it is still rising from the ground level. In a few months, you will be able to find more news and pictures about it.

Crazy is to prove that this building is under construction. Is much prejudice against a country.

Ah, that diagram is a bit confusing because the beacons aren't labeled.

Thanks for the correction.

From the profile:

It seems he also worked on the Burj Khalifa.

No, It is believed to have 135 floors, also considering the fact that Burj Khalifa is 108m taller than India Tower.

arent beacons like antennas and not counting to the "spire", whitch means the official height will be shorter then the height to highest point of the building?

Actually, the spire thing or whatever is streamlined into the structure, therefore it is harder to place than an antenna. That is definitely a spire.

The managing director of the company that is building this is in serious legal trouble over an unrelated corruption scandal in the telecom sector.

Not just that ,but perfectly reasonable and on topic posts were deleted as well. It seems that the moderator got carried away in this deletion. My deleted post said nothing derogatory about India and was completely on topic, but yet it too was deleted.

That really pisses me off. I took the time to contribute to this forum only to have that work rudely deleted and without notification. Somebody needs to brush up on their moderator skills.

Loved the diagram, Soroban. As I was mentioning earlier, the building itself tops out at about 520 m, the rest is a enormous 200 m spire. Damn, that thing is almost a super-tall in itself!

Is this the tallest spire ever on a building? 1 WTC has a 124 m spire, dunno if there are any taller ones on a building.

So you'd rather have mod to not delete the pages of flame posts, is that what you are trying to say?

Being a mod for a forum as large as SSC is not an easy job. They will have to go through hundreds of complaints and thousands of posts on a daily basis. Of course there will be some mistakes being made; after all there was something like 6 pages full of flame posts, why'd you expect them to read every single one of them?

Instead of crying and calling the mods "rude" and "carried away," why don't you just shut up and make another "reasonable and on topic" post?

Dude....Just forget about it ...Thats true though, although 90% of the 3 pages were full of crap and hypocrites, there were some good info, i guess you posted one of them.....I am not worried, cuz my only posts that got deleted were the arguments against the other bitch asses....Being a non profit organization, we would have to forgive the moderators.

Hi all.

Hi Soroban.
Fantastic stuff man !!

Guys - I encourage you to go to the links posted by Soroban on post 1596 and download the files. The full section drawing above and the floorplans for B3, B2, B1, Lower ground level, and ground levels are there in pdf and dwg files. The pdf's can be zoomed to 6400 % and with a free autocad dwg viewer the dwg's can be zoomed near infinitely - both with perfect clarity. Any and all of the text or whatever you want to see can be read/seen.

There are also schematics for electrical panels that are just as zoomable.
These just may be the best drawings (mainly because of the zoomable formats) I've seen for any project - even better, this early in the construction phase.

I was waiting to add this project to my list of 'watched' projects - this new stuff was just what I needed to get on it.

Thanks again Soroban.


Ray.

The spire is three cores e empty space. As is:

Italian Monument, Vitória, Brazil.

Moreover, this is the idea.
