its 818m exactly. with aircraft beacons, height = 818.60m.
not sure if CTBUH will include beacons in official height.
they would have if the handrail and platform were built.
Also the height is another 6m if height is taken from lower concourse.

Hi all.

Thanks who.

I still question why the random placing though ...

The crane can lift its boom and rotate to either side of the structure but the problem is when it's facing away from the structure. The deck with the counter weights is too long and would make contact.

As for the interior shots we are missing ... can't someone go to the security gate and tell them he (she) is an SSC forummer and get full access ?
Well ficken should be able to ...

I think the same; we need to see some interior photos. Taufiq's video from 115 floor is quite nice, but he/she does not have access in the rest areas of that floor at least?

Thanx Helghast. It's from March '05. I have some from the same day I believe but this one is new to my collection.

Thanx Omar - squeeze nuts for those interior shots if you have to ...

Thanx for the info Altin.

Are you saying that the beacon that has been on top of the spire since early January, even before the spire was fully jacked up, is temporary and will be replaced with a permanent (probably) more powerfull one?
