This building will be 709 feet, not 687 feet. For some reason Emporis lists it wrong.

From the Shangri-La website:

The unique design for the slender 709-foot-tall tower calls for exterior columns incorporated into the building’s faceted curtain wall, using low iron glass to achieve a crystal clear appearance of the tower.
