Now, that's a proper world class skyline, from a city that's still far from beign well-known here in Mexico (and probably in many other countries as well). Situation that will dramatically change in the coming decades.

It's not topped out yet, in the last picture zwamborn posted, one can see that edge/point of the 530m measurement still needs to be met at the intersection of the two tallest columns in proximity to each other. They have sloping horizontal notches for the rest of the steel that will make the perimeter of the signature swoop of the tower. It is very close though, maybe only ~5 meters!

Yes, maybe 1-2 m. steel construction plus glass parapet!

by ....something from gaoloumi:
The big question is 530 or 539 m (according gaoloumi).

I hope it is 539 then, they need to stretch the top longer.

I believe the 539 measurement is from sea level.
