550m current height? Then the core is very close to T/O

I hope the Crown/Roof structure + the spire won't take as long as the crown at ST.

Nice work YannSZ, this has risen so quick,, this is why I say china should do the 1000, meter, this thing has risen pretty much full height while,, The middle east, is barely outta the ground. I'm sure Jeddah KT will be beautiful,, but just seems like China deserves it. The US hasn't come close, I would rather China have the 1st 1000+

I really hope China will get a 1000m+ Tower, the chances aren't that bad i think.

the core is very close to top out + at least another half year for the crown and spire. Definitely in 2015, hopefully until July/August

It's surrounded by 200m towers, and looks like it's standing by itself. Why the need to go to 1000? If it's too much bigger, the rest of the skyline will look like a joke.

Shenzhen has a great skyline, and this is a perfect pinnacle that keeps the cohesion intact. Jeddah is going to have 1 humongous tower in the middle of a wasteland. I wouldn't recommend any other city to emulate something like this. It's going to be hundreds upon hundreds of years before it makes any sort of economic sense to build 1000m. Even if Jeddah's tower is a success, and I'm dubious, Shenzhen will forever have the better skyline, by far.

The new pieces of super column steel are twice as long as before:
