even a shorter spire would be a nice addition to the building, dont have to be 60 meters myb 60ft lol

A modest proposal to the developers:
1 - disassemble that orange crane
2 - reassemble it on the third floor from the top, the one with the beams crossing in the middle
3 - let it slip through the square holes in the upper floors
4 - add three more sections
5 - add a tip
6 - clad
7 - done!

so with that crane i think it seems to be likely that we get at least a tiny spire to reach 600m and with that i am already all happy, i just want the form of the building have it's original flow

Agree. It seems the yellow crane will rise a bit higher than the blue one to install a spire maybe. I really hope it

Oh My god even now when the entire thing is topped into an almost point. People are still hoping or imagining that a spire would pop up.
Get real people there is no spire . I am sure even after the damn building is occupied still people forever discuss the possibility of a spire popping up

And you want to take away their dreams...

I would not be so surprised if the new crane will remain there, and will be used as a "service crane" for building cleaning and stuff. Usually those cranes are "hidden" in the mechanical floors, but this building will have all kinds of used spaces on top of the building, like observatory, restaurant, bar, art gallery and who know what... not a lot of space to house a "behemoth" like that.

I will remember to requote this if the spire ends up rising.

A Chrysler Building spire-like scenario is technically possible. What if the developers actually want the building to be the tallest in China? They're not supposed to build the spire because of the close proximity of the airport, but maybe they could just blatantly disregard regulations and build the thing at the last minute. It's not impossible; it happened in New York.
