ok, i couldn't find more information about the tower's final height. strangly, CTBUH still lists it as 204m. if you ask me, that's my guess:

Could be right. That last part you marked is exactly 4 floors. Let's say that one floor is about 4 meters. 4x4 = 16 meters. 188+16 meters = 204 meters.

yeah lol, my calculation exactly. i'm pretty sure the final height is 204m, but there's no need to move this thread yet. also, sooner rather than later, there will be an article about this tower with an official release of the height measurement.

The glass is nice.

Amazingly, this area was quite forlorn not long ago.

Ni3lS, i think you can move this tower to the skyscraper section! i checked CTBUH again (http://buildingdb.ctbuh.org/?do=buil...ilding_id=2029) and the final height is 204m (roof). also, the renders where i marked the different heights seem to be accurate.
