252 floors in total but just 167 are useable. But the numbers may not be final yet.

We all want to see this finished, and hopefully travel there, but those two comments alone suggest a considerable detachment from reality sadly within JECP.

Just like how Emaar said the Burj is 200 stories high (or as high as a 200 floor building), that's just by raw height. Same with Jeddah Tower. It's structurally as high as a 252 story building (at ~4m per average floor). But of course we know it doesn't actually have that many floors, or if it does it may only be indicated internally / on architectural technical diagrams.

Cladding looks so plain.
