Hi Altin.

The numbers I used for my BD Plan are to the top of the completed floor. Yours are obviously to the top of the beams only. While I do have info on the floor thickness for every level of the concrete and info on all the sections with terraces where did you get the elevations without the floor finishing for each steel section ?

The circular pinnacle starts at tier 27 at 2.1 m. dia.
Tier 28 is 1.5.
Tier 29 is 1.35.
Tier 30 is 1.2.
Tier 30 doesn't get slightly thinner at 806.3 m. It is still 1.2 m. dia. when it meets the bottom of the platform on the top.

Do you have some newer plans than the rest of us ?
If so post them please.

- Yes from 08 09 07

Great shot.

With the wheels, colouring, and the brown look to the workers coveralls I can't help but get the feeling of the early 20th century - a steamship or a steam locomotive.

Yes, mine are on top of the beams, and the transition from 1.35 to 1.2 happens at 806.3 meters. All other numbers (including where the base of the spire starts from, are correct too.

Lovely shots smussuw. I can't wait until they get all those cranes out of the picture. Also that house across the street looks fantastic. I also love seeing big trees like this in the middle of the desert.

like trees?

How about this panoramic view from our house. I'll try to edit the sky (i'll try to do it manually because I don't know how to use adobe and stuff) so that it doesn't show those sky color variation. I have a big version too
