Jeddah tower is to have 252 floors in total

So please, moderators correct the thread topic to the total floors number, not to make more confusion

By the mid-1970's, New York City was almost bankrupt, Chicago was not in much better shape, and every company still wanted that sprawling office park with plenty of parking overlooking manicured lawns and gardens instead of gritty, crime-ridden cities.

It is only in the last 20 years that people have finally returned to the cities and they are honestly thinking about building tall, however cities in the USA have too much vacant or underused land to make it economical for a really tall tower. Manhattan is the rare exception, but hesitance to surpass One World Trade Center, resistance from the Federal Aviation Administration, and general NIMBYism (SHADOWS!!!!) have deterred almost all of the tallest buildings. Cities in Europe are plagued by severe NIMBYism (Moscow with its stubbornly weak economy is the only exception) so only China and the Middle East are really thinking about building more than 1500 feet high, and many are showpieces of the country's or a nationalized company's strength.

As long as the economy does not have a significant downturn anytime soon, really tall towers are possible in New York City, Chicago, and possibly Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Jersey City, San Francisco, and Atlanta in the next 10 years. New York City and Chicago flirted with 2000-footers immediately prior to the Great Recession and the others all had 1300-1500 foot proposals over the last 10 years or so.

Yes but only 167 floors will be usable and Burj Khalifa also have a total story count of 211 but an important part of them are mechanicals.

I'm not sure what i should excpect in the future. Perhaps the investor have a financial problems. Comparing contruction speed to Burj Khalifa shows that too.

Burj Khalifa has a total of 163, from where you've got this 211 number give us the source

Either financial problems or the plans with the downtown area surrounding this tower isnīt going as expected.

Not sure about 211 specifically, but I thought Adrian Smith or Emaar had said that the building would "appear" structurally equivalent to 200 floors high. Thus in the same way, Jeddah Tower symbolizes a structure about 240 floors high, even if a fraction of that isn't able to be occupied.

A floor is clearly counted when there is a roof above a roof

Actually, google on the internet gives you all the sources saying the 163 floors of burj khalifa as a total number including the mecahanical ones and 252 for Jeddah Tower as a total

He may be giving the 211 number from his head but it is logically possible and that is why I asked for the source but his source might be a random number
