That's great news . The tower's exterior will soon be finished - I wonder, how long will the crown take to complete?

The diagrid structure becomes more and more a noticeable part of the tower's design.
The architectural top of the roof is 508 m.
The white parts at the top are the beginning parts of the crown.
The crown will be 47m high, so roughly 4x higher than the white parts you see at the top now.

I can see a gold crown on the top

Anyway I repeat my question - anybody knows when (more or less) can we expect the tower topped out ?

Unfortunately I couldn't find any information in Korean media when the crown will be finished.

My guess is that maybe until end of february or beginning of march it will be done?

On these photos from today, we can clearly see that the crown's construction is underway with new beams installed everyday.

Sometimes I still wish this tower was more distinctively Korean, but it's such a sleek, elegant shape, and standing so monolithicly in the skyline, it just looks fantastic.
