I am kind of disappointed by the current pace of construction on top. I would have thought the steel part would be quicker.

There's something odd about the winglet in Imre's Photo of the Top of the concrete. It looks like there is one; Concrete winglet and one Steel winglet both at the same level. As that what it is?

598,5 meters, so they still didnt break through the 600 meter-mark. And then there are still the 700 en the 800 meters to reach. Incredible when you imagine it.

How about the final height? From where it will be measured? these 819m are counted from foundation slab? If not, it won't actually have 819m but approx. 834m?
