Youre right, counting 156 floors you get 585.7 meters, including the basement you get 159 floors and 601 meters. But AFAIK underground floors don`t count into official height. So when completed, official height would be 819m, but the actual height would be 835 from top of the slab. Seems like doka has messed up here, combining the official floor count and absolute height.

^yes.
sunshine- i think 800m+ is good enough. it would look out of proportion to add a 200m spire just to reach 1km.

I think they are right.... First you build the foundation... And on this they started to rise the walls. So what they say it's perfectly right.
And i dont think they should take the height from the foundation...
So if you build a coal mine under the building which is 1800 meters deep you have the tallest building when you put a 2 meter shelter on it?

Height is.. what you see when you stand infront of a building.

Hi all.

Nice find Urban. Yes Doka doesn't update very often but they have some nice ones when they do. I check almost daily to thier site as part of my rounds.

Here is some more from Doka - some goodies ...

















Pics are from mid October

Enjoy.

Very nice pictures. I wouldn't be able to picture in my head how it will look in 10-15 years time as there is so much going on. What I do no though is that it'll look amazing.

Imres Pics

Excellant pics Imre, so we will be able to see a step by sep construction of the steelwork going up.

You can actually see the angle where the cross members will be located where the un-prepared (rusted) part on the corner stiffeners.

Steal work didn't start, but steel work did !
If you take a look at the first Doka ceremonu pictures, you see one steel base of the steel structure (on the corner of the tower). Plus you see these shapes all round the top of the concrete structure on Master Imre's pictures...

Yeah.
