There never was a 1011 meter version. According to the gentlemen who was promoting that version, a redesign was going to happen at floor 76. We all know that didn't happen....

If the highest section of the spire is 1.2m in diameter (thanks for the fantastic diagram Culwulla)they could have a ladder inside with a glass dome or cone on top....well....why not get to the very top if you can!

Does anyone have an explanation as to why the glass looks like this? Could it simply be the accumulated dust and sand giving this effect
No, no, nothing of that. It's just becouse of the way the reflections are captured by the UV Filter Imre uses in his camera.

The glass is the same throughout the tower.

Yes I agree, it just the angle of the photo and the fact the other floors at that point are obscured.

yes they have a ladder with access all the way to top of spire. It has a hatch and safety ring where maintenance guy can change aircraft beacon @ 818m up.

50:50? I would say no more than 1:999

950m version would be 1:99 and 900m to be 1:9


Current 818m version would be 9:1 however

Read the first post. It says mixed use. About nightclubs and stuff I don't know, there probably will be some bars and stuff though (depending on the hotel)

Once I saw a photo (donīt remember where) of a maintenance person at the very top of the CN Tower antenna standing up. I look for this photo but never find again.

We may never know if they have a 200m spire hidden within the building preparing to jack up anytime.



This may sound like a joke, but u get my idea!

hidden spire? guy, that is exactly the plan . the spire of the tower will be constructed inside of the steel-section and then it will be uplifted to the top . but not to 1000m

To CULWULLA:

Corrected your diagram myself because its too hard to explain, i've corrected sum tiers and re aligned the spire so it is in alignment with the base. if you can, use this picture from now on when updating if thats possible.

*EDIT* the picture seems to have shrunk but i have the full size one on my computer. how can i get it to you?
