Yes ZZ - level 159 has a terrace facing South. 159 is the first level of tier 17.

Nice update Imre.

Thanx for the comments on the adjustable spire myth guys.

Hey Imre, I really like your portrait of the guard in front of his blue hut.
He gave you some good eye contact.
Nice work.

Apparently it is on the 5th steel floor, so 617.7 to the top of the beams.

No, 617.70meters.


Consider that the top of the concrete was 585.70 meters and this is the 5th floor on top of that. Keep also in mind the 158 + 158Mezz are considered as 1 floor by us, so:

Base of Steel Section: 585.70 meters
1st Steel floor: Up to 592.10 meters
2nd Steel floor: Up to 598.50 meters
3rd Steel floor: Up to 604.90 meters
4th Steel floor: Up to 611.30 meters
5th Steel floor: Up to 617.70 meters

Hi all.


Altin has it right. Very gratifying to see my plan being used. Thank you all - I was hoping it wasn't only for my own use.

So kool - once the columns are up for the first level of tier 18 - level 160 mezz. 3 - we will have the tallest structure on earth ! I realize the cranes have been taller for a while now but they aren't part of the structure.

Some pics - click the thumbs and then view original ( then in XP if your settings are default click on the pic ) to see full size as some are very large.

Picasa - AJ - 08 01 10 and 11



Picasa - Diana - 08 01 20



08 02 09



Flickr - FotoGraficSub - 08 02 18



Picasa - Alpen - 08 02 20 and 21



Have a good day all.

Wow, the 4th steel floor took only one week, only half the time of the 3rd one.
