Or just mercilessly increase parking fees. Seems to have worked in central Tokyo.

Anyway, this tower is looking fantastic.

I was refering to the base of the tower itself, not including the sorrounding mall.
Even if if narrows a lot, the first 200m are really bulky, in the scale of old wtc. That's why I was asking the dimensions, seems like a huge footprint

You know, it just occurred to me that this building has a very closed-in core - in other words, I don't see openings into the core from the various levels. I see the slots for the floor steel beams, but how do people get into the core on different levels once this is finished?

It seems the core is getting ahead again. Good to see! She's starting to look more slender too now with the extra height. Love the updates guys.

this diagram is wrong. taipei 101 is officially 509 meters but in your diagram is says 448 meters. official height should include the steeple.
