I'm on the 43rd floor of the ESB and I watched this building go up. I have to say it was kind of cool to watch this go up. They were throwing it up two floors a week at certain points in construction.

That said, this title should be changed to ... T/O. They are lowering the crane now and it is down half the height of the building today. They didn't work on the crane due to high winds.

I'm surprised that at this stage of the construction the final height of the building has yet to be confirmed?

I wish the corner pieces were pointed straight up, not angled outwards. Reminds me of a mohawk.

this is not the final height (SSP and WNY info confirm that), just the height to the heighest occupied floor, in this case the 58th floor. if you can't roof + crown you get >200m, easily. and look at the pics! CTBUH doesn't have all the info, same thing with the beekman which is listed as 267m... please!

It's the most "official" at the moment. Feel free to contact the developer then to get the real height.
