Wow! I just noticed that after reading this it's more octagonal and the corners are much more pronounced.

Funny how its neighbors would dominate the skyline of most normal cities.

From those great straight on shots and the diagram on SSP with the large angled reinforcement sections, it appears we're right at the top of the 5th one where the core is now. This means the outer frame of the building should start it's gentle slanting inward. If the diagram is any indication on SSP, we're just over 450 meters and about 100 floors now, perhaps slightly less.

The new diagram that was uploaded on SSP is has incorrect figures , no offense to Eduardo Segundo. That is the one thing I hate about SSP, they take detail over accuracy, Id rather have an accurate and ugly/nice diagram then one that is made to just purposefully show detail.

The top of the core where the mechanical floor is being constructed is at 450m.At the current mech floor that is just finishing up, is where only the 4 corners of the building will begin to make diamonds, it is at the core mechanical floor (450m) where the vertical sides of the building will begin to taper.

Nice comparison image there. I think we meant the same thing. The core may reduce in size but once the rest catches up, we're right at the point where it'll taper.

Either way, love this building for it's height and design.
