I very much look forward to seeing this tower rise - it will be the first time that I have followed the development of a building from an empty plot of land to being the tallest building in the entire world!

Just the concrete part of the Tower alone will be tall enough to make it the second tallest Tower in the World. And the Steel Top will be tall enough alone to be called a Supertall Skyscraper.
Amazing Stuff!
