2) Why not an outdoor observation deck like WTC 2, south tower had?
1) It actually has less floors than that number, the base has no floors (except for the lobby) since that space is used for mechanical issues. And, counting the Communications Platform Ring, the tower has 109 "floors"

2) The first reason of not designing an outdoor observation deck is because the microwaves from the Communication Platform Ring are going to be really dangerous... Besides, in my opinion the current observation deck design is beautiful: you will be able to have a bigger panorama of New York, specially when you can actually see the bottom of the tower.

Excellent job! Just two things, the curtain wall is installed up to the 26th floor, and the State-of-the-Art Cocoon System is wider than just 3 floors, it is 4
I suggest you to include imperial system, since the tower is designed in imperial.

Hm, so you're saying it would be an 360 view at the top of the tower, indoor? how can they see the bottom? =)

Thx

There are actually 110 floors on the prints, one of the levels inside the spire is numbered 110. It's purely symbolic.

There are actually 92 floors in the building, don't confuse floor count (the actual number of floors) with floor number (What a particular floor is called.)

There simply isn't room for an outdoor observation deck on this tower. The top of the tower is taken up by cooling towers and communications equipment.

They are currently framing out the 57th and 58th floors but it's actually the 45th floor counting actual floors starting with the Lobby as 1.

If you take the hight of the 58th floor 693 feet and divide by 12 you get 57.75. So, the actual hight of the 58th floor is very close to the hight of the 58th floor in a building with 58 actual floors with a 12 foot floor spacing.

CULWULLA your diagrams are great, love em. But, the 58th floor is 693' 4" or 211.318 meters

Add about 4 feet to the column splice for a current top of steel hight of 697' 4".

The corner nodes may have confused some people into thinking that 3 floors at a time were being added. They are still adding just two floors per lift.

Hi Alex.
The BK is on its 30th thread and has for now more pages than this one. Not sure about the record but in total the BK must have the most in the supertalls section.

Fury, we all appreciate your posting, but it seems you only enter this thread to talk about the Burj Khalifa. No offense, but it's not conducive to on-topic posting.

Hi Uaark.

The BK is pretty much all I discuss...
I only post here when it relates ..

You are correct though - I will try to keep my posts on topic.
My apologies.
