Well done everyone, from the paleolithic til now. Special thanks to Mr. Newton, professor David Hilbert and whoever figured out how to melt steel.

:cheers

Since when are concrete piles considered levels?

The 3 underground levels will have a total height/depth of 15 meters, in other words nothing special.

Ive chatted to guys at emporis and shown diagrams of spire and most agree aircraft beacon structure WILL be included in official height. Also they are undecided on where to take height from.
There is apparently 3 entrances all dif levels.
1st @ 15.7m below, mall elevation,
2nd @ 8m below
and the one we have been going off.
so it could be 819m, or 827m or 835m.
SOM will give plans to emporis after completion so they can decide.
