Awesome updates! I was never given a straight answer but will the middle of the core where the 3 wings meet be thicker than the wings themselves? It seems not poured yet...

He means 1776ft (541m).
And obviously, KT will have only 5 more floors than BK...
A 1007m building without a spire should have ~250fl...

People saying that a ~300m tall spire on this building as though it is no technical feat...
It is still mostly an enclosed structure and will contain a few 'floors' for mechanical equipment and maintenance, and with it being so slender and as tall as the ESB; it's not exactly simple! Think of the weight of it alone!

If you really want a 1km roof height building, this is bringing that dream one step closer - technology and techniques are ever improving, this is an evolutionary transition

Wouldn't be feasible though. We will see such heights, only when the next generation elevator technologies come to the market, after UltraRope.
Plus, such buildings should become much more self-sustainable!

In the year 2000 there were only 4 towers with more than 100 floors. 14 years later people are upset when the world's tallest tower has "only" 170 floors.

170 floors are very impressive and i'm happy with it. But we all would love to see the first tower with more than 200 floors
