Comet the cat,,,Your video deserves more than a thumbs up.... It took some time,effort and devotion, so I'd hit the "Pat on the back button", If there were one.. Once again, hats off to you,,, NICE JOB!!!!! I know I couldn't make a video if I tried, I'm 40, and barely know my way around a computer,, my 14yr old could probably could do it.. I take it you're younger?? Because my generation, we didn't learn a lot about computers in school, (we learned on typewriters how to type) ,whereas the younger generation knows a hell of a lot more about computers..

That's less than a basketball hoop in height. It's the height of your ceiling, or less.

They could just install a light beacon for planes that's 3 metres tall and call it 600.

Nope, light beacon isn't architectural so I don't think it would count. But I believe it can't be that big of a deal to redesign the crown to add 3 meters to the architectural height if they really wanted to.

597m or 600m does not make much of a difference visually at all. just for the sake of the name 'megatall' it seems a bit random to increase height

To me it is pretty much a megatall. 3 meters is marginal and won't make any difference visually. If they would rise it then obviously only to have the ability to call it an official megatall but truth be told very few people understand what supertall is, forget the megatall. So it's rather doubtful they care about that title, I just think that if they do it shouldn't be much of a challenge to alter the design even far into construction.

Agree, 3m more would be easy to add...no doubt.

They would actually need 3.4 meters to reach the artificial megatall status of 600 meters.

If the current design stands, and that crown contains an observatory or atleast a floor of some kind, this tower will have the tallest actual floor of any building in the world.

With Ping Ans Green light, "not so fast my friend" Ping An should stay steadily in front...

Another massive 3 x 3 core with huge supports at all 4 corners to buttress the building.
