I don't think that's right, it's a few floors past the base already.

Welcome back, btw.

Thanks

I estimated the current height from this pic by 600West:



To me this seems to be approximately 25 meters, although I could be wrong. It's hard to tell what the height of the show floors is, but I would expect the bigger ones to be approximately 4 meters and the smaller ones approximately 3 meters, but I could be wrong, so if anybody has plans of the building or saw it in person, please correct me

This building is way taller than 25m that's for sure, if the first 5 floors are around 4 meters tall that's 20m already!
If the smaller floors are 3m tall then that's 18m...
So this tower going by that logic is 38m
So overall between 35-40m I'd say

a 25m tall building housing 11 floors would make some pretty remarkable low floor to ceiling heights
Also the average floor height is approximately 3.49m if every floor was the same height

Oops, now I see where I made an error, I calculated the building to only be 7 floors while it is already 11 floors. I made that error because of the poorly visible floor plates from some angles. My apologies, that was my mistake, so here is the correction and now that I know that the average floor height is 3,5 meters I can now fairly certainly assume that the building is now 38,5 meters tall

So this building has gained 4 floors since the 23rd of March

So 4 floors in 13 days and they're currently starting another! That's crazy!
By this time next week this building should have 17 floors

It should be very tall by the end of this year then.

It should be topped out in around 7-8 months if this pace keeps up!

Hey folks, time for a diagram update. Since the building now has 15 I estimate it to be 52 meters or 171 feet tall

This is a quite simple structure and it can be built very quickly.

Hey folks, I made a diagram update for this building based on the recent pics and info. The building is currently 60 meters or 198 feet tall and I would like to thank Danny for the height figures. They helped me a lot with the accuracy of this update
