From gaoloumi...



Does this provide evidence they are going ahead with the spire?

Perhaps they are reinforcing those outer beams to support the extra weight of the spire?

The frameworks circled in yellow contain the formworks to cast the supercolumns' concrete hull. It's only logical that they pour the concrete up to the highest point of the supercolumns, which should be reached now. How is this related to the spire?

you're right absolutely no link with the spire. These formworks will be dismantled in the coming 2 days I think.

I would assume they would already be constructing the lower part of the spire inside of the crown - which should be visible to us at this point. Hopefully i'll be proven wrong.

I don't think there will be a spire (unfortunately). It looks like a horizontal truss has been erected at the top linking all eight (two per corner) sloping roof columns. This truss would get on the way of any spire attachement I believe.

Damn. Can't believe this tower is almost close to topping out. NICE.

I'm hoping to see a picture of a truck pulling up with a 60m long spire then lifted into the air by a crane to top out this tower.

I'm guessing that it is if the beam (yellow circle) follows purple, no spire. But if it follows the red line then yes spire?
