So its interesting to see how part of the spire is to be formed in concrete, although looking closer it appears to be just a continuation of the outer fin wall.
Ah, you're right, I mis-spoke. Rather, it could just be a damper through mass alone. Not exactly tuned, but yeah, could also support one above.

Gotcha, AltinD. Just figuring since that diagram said concrete that it was already decided on. That'd be one heck of a pumping record, though.

One thing is clear: the roofs may be more conflictual than the spires.

I don't think even half the building will be visible from that last angle once it's completed

Why? The cranes we see on the pic are definitely not 500m tall

No, I meant the spire will end up out of the frame if that photo was taken from that same angle in the future.

I guess half the building was an exaggeration.

Maybe I'm negative,, but is this really going to happen?
I sure hope so. but just seems like a lot of smoke and mirrors at this point.
It's kind of strange the 1/2 mile photos away, and no access to site.
Hope it's not like Sky City, a 1000meter building done in 3 weeks, or 3 month's whatever that propaganda was...

Of course it happens. Just look at the construction pics, they're working on the first floor above ground already.
