Very long new super column being assembled... Seems to be 4 floors high.
Taken by me couple of minutes ago:

Still quite a long way to go yet. The spire will make this really tall.

Looks like we'll have to wait for the super columns to reach there full height almost before the spire starts then! I find it quite incredible how such a large and solid spire is ort of suspended above the floor below!
I'm also looking forward to seeing how it is constructed!

What happened to the rumors that this was going to be downsized? Is it still following the plan of the full 660m?
