There's no news about it.

at 457 Meter's it's crawling up on ICC and SWFC's roofs,(sorry, my 2 personal favorite's),, those are some Incredible feats. And still 150 to go,, very Impressive
I know ST is taller, but where are the roof's on MCT(450, 480, 520?) and BK?
That's why I like the rooftop argument.

Could someone remind me which source states this is 597m and not 600m like the opening post by z0rg states?

The following sources, who are all related to this project, suggest this will reach 600m or 1968ft in height:

Quote:
Otis will altogether supply 255 units upon its completion in 2016. This new installment in the central business district of Tianjin’s High-Tech Park will reach a prominent height of about 600 meters and 117 floors.
http://www.otisworldwide.com/b2a-new...?item=20130603

Quote:
The centerpiece of the development is the Goldin Finance 117 Tower, a 1,968-foot- (600-meter-) tall office and hotel tower with 117 floors.
https://www.pbworld.com/capabilities...117_tower.aspx

Quote:

Quote:

Probably two. I'm not that well versed on my metric system, but 3 meters seems a bit tall for one floor.

EDIT: Actually that's about 9 or 10 feet, so disregard this.

Gudvalli That is what we have all thought all along, we were given the height 597 from, well at least the day I joined July 2012,,, We were all begging for a supertall, 600+ and never heard a word in response.
Maybe You can give some insight. I've been here 2 and 1/2 years and that was my perception, as well as others.
We've been mislead by other sights saying 597, and nobody clearing that up,,..
after further research we have Vito C.
another Mod saying 597.

Since I haven't quite followed this project from the beginning, I'm not sure about the height either. But other forumers like Vito have been following it, so I say we should go with their sources. But this design deserves to be a megatall.
