We read it, then we ignored it since it obviously was just fantasy and had no bases.

Spire...

Hopefully after the unusual crane lifting spire pic a few pages back, people will not mention a wonky spire again! Looked as straight as an arrow to me! Great to see the clued up posters proved correct with the height too. Although I could find better use for that bit of cladding which will be hidden at the top, the side of my house!

What escalators? I see some steel and some ladders in a mechanical room but no escalators in the pictures you cited.

The mechanical floors are made of two floors wasn't it? Maybe those escalators are there to go to one floor to another, because normal stairs would take to much place?

Are those top floors even real floors? It looks like it's just a 'fake floor' with windows on the outside but solid concrete in the inside.

That's a mechanical floor. There are 9will be) allot of machineries, pipes and ducts around, so staircases will be needed to access them.

Yes! render = 800+ pixels, real tower = 800+ meters

I don't recall to have really seen any cladding there (obviously because that part of the spire is totally hidden from view). I think we are all presuming there will be cladding.

If you are refering to the top floors on the concrete section of the tower (up to the height of 585.70 meters) then yes, they are real usable floors.
