Incredible. These colossal cranes we first saw a few weeks ago are quickly becoming advanced in scale, by the very speedy construction rate which has overwhelmed this building!

thing is,the big platform might not be the observation deck for the public
IIRC,that was around 140 or so
so,yeah,the observation deck will probably be somewhere around 500 or so meters
no higher than 500

Since a 555m high OB deck opened recently at Burj Khalifa i'm sure KT will own a higher deck.

Huh? Of course it does. The observation deck/platform is at 630 meters structural height.

The thing is we are not sure if there are open to public... So I wonder what will be the official KT obs deck height (for public)

Yeah, it's been confusing when people have thrown around the observation deck term. My understanding had been that the protruding platform would be solely for the resident of the penthouse "sky palace" apartment. Does anyone know if that has changed?

they got empire state, WTC and sears tower all three wrong, because they only know the number, but not what part of the building the number refers to

Slighty off topic but with Etihad's great deals for Christmas here in the US, I snagged a couple tickets to Abu Dhabi / Dubai well into next year. It won't be in time to see KT rise much, and I don't think my travel partner would dare trek all the way across Saudi Arabia for a building, but at least I might get the chance to bump into some of you legendary forumers ;p.
