My money is on a cosmetic redesign during construction to add 3 metres to this to attain 600m.

3 meters is really not a big deal, no visual effect. megatall is just a name it doesn't change anything of the impact, this is basically visually a 600m building without a spire, no shame that it is not a megatall in the books.

To tell you the truth I liked it on SSP diagrams more than in the render.

I think it'll take 2 months for the basement to cure,, the concrete and all,, 6 floors will be Minute compared to what you see in 2013... That's my guess.. Barbachium can you help me out with this 1??? Probably take awhile for the underground floors to dry,, be4 taking off skyward..

yeah a lot of people are not a big fan of the diamond at the top. i think it looks quite cool, but the more i think about it, the more i start to think that they might have been better off with a different concept at the top.

i just wish they would have closed the top up. looks quite weird from above, well but then again, you will not see it from above very often.

The first floors on a supertall always take a while. They are working very fast on the project as a whole, which includes much much more than just the 597m tower.

You mean on the tower? It looks like just one at the moment, but I'm pretty sure there must be more in the future.

Btw I just found this render of the structure. It looks like there will be 4 mega columns on each corner of the tower.
