Well, since nobody knows, I tried to approximate the height from some of the recent pics. I think that the building is now approximately 68 meters or 223 feet tall. If anybody has a better figure let me know and I'll change my diagram

I think I got a steel erection of my own right about now.

Glad to see this one finally rising again.

Good to see steel rising! This will be fun to watch rise over the next couple years.
Now we need to get 2 going.

Yeah, A lot of steel already

With the end of winter and the reduction of the core, this one will be much faster for now on.
