Yahooo So is it already over 600m now? Should be close. I really hope they will need less than one month to complete the next one.

L159 will be 604.9m. Floors are 6.4m high now. L158 has also mezzanine floor, both 3.2 meters high.
Fury has made a great job with this floor elevation list

lev158 and 158 mezz are 3.2m high not 6.4m, thus the next height will be just over 600m @ 601.7m.
