Its mostly an aesthetic feature to improve the towers proportions. IMO 2004m is the most probable height estimate at the moment.

If the total height remained at 185m and the shape remains the same, then the quadratic part of the tower must shrink which means less office space compared to the earlier renders.

Interesting..

On topic: Great progress. It looks like a massive construction site. Is the tower going to be that massive?

the site is massive indeed. the tower itself won´t be that big, it is going to have a huge base though.

price waterhouse coopers is the anchor tenant leasing most of the office space. I´m not sure though, how much of this space will be used by pwc in the base of the tower.
