If I'm not getting the location of the tower wrong the distance should be over 45 km. The explosion was in the port which is about 45+km from the CBD.

Yep, the The Chow Tai Fook should be of more concern (4km from ground zero).

I doubt it is structurally affected.

It's wonderful to hear the core is topped out - but I also notice that the cladding seems to be progressing very slowly. I wonder why.

A mini spire wouldn't fit here. I would plan such a building simply with one more floor

600m is a really arbitrary mark though. one more floor would do visually nothing statistics is really the only thing it changes
