Technically yes but not quite so in real life.

I will use SSP diagram picture to show what I mean:

Therefore 335m is actually cosniderably more than half already.

Hard to believe there's so much more to go when it's already so tall. When is it likely to top out?

Just looking at the sheer size of this, Gonna look like seeing Yao Ming, standing amongst the munchkins of Wizard of Oz, this is gonna just Look so imposing, "even to my dislike, moreso than Shanghai Tower" because there's nothing to make it look less "beast like" ST has SWFC and Jin and OPT, to make it look less imposing from certain angles. This here, is going to just look every bit as spectacular as The Mecca clock tower, standing alone in the desert. This will be very impressive.

Once the building is actually topped out it would be apparent that it is one of the tallest in the world so those who don;t know now would come to that conclusion independently at that point. It's not like every other city has one exactly like it.

So, according to the timeline shown, and the diagram from SSP, the outer part of the building will start tapering inward again around the beginning of July.
