439 m. is not the main roof. This is the top of parapet, structural height is 388 m. WTC 1 has 10 m. glass parapet. Main roof is at 406 m, roof 417 m., or the top of parapet. By the same logic we can take 439 meters for roof. http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=7788

That is the old design. The current version:

Tip of spires - 468m
Top of parapet - 420m
Roof of mechanical penthouse - 401m
Main roof - 388m
Highest occupied floor - 384m

I like this building's design and cladding (at least as shown in the renderings). If only they had chosen a colour other than blue. It's getting to be a rather tired look, especially in China. Glass does come in other colours.

Correct, if you do not count spires or antennae.

I don't think so... I think this is really bad news, the shorter tower is still not clad. This project is loosing faith with me.

So much for being on hold. That Tianjin hater on the last page was completely wrong. Maybe he shouldn't jump to conclusions next time. Looks like construction is in full swing. To clarify I'm talking about Cho oyo not Munwon.
