those drum-shaped floors were the only distinctive part of the building, now it's just going to look like an already ancient building that would feel at home in Dubai Marina This ones really gonna bring NYC's skyline down

So do I.

With a lot of small and standard floors it should rise quickly. But even then topping out end of 2013 sound pretty ambitious.
Basement floors always take a lot of time.

The cladding will make or break this, just like with every other box. If it has a unique, stunning exterior shell the building will look amazing.

He doesn't know of any models showing no drum mechanical floors, only with them. There is a good sized render without them though.

This is the model of what will be built. One can see the mechicals through the open floors that appear every six or seven stories.

Looks more like every 12 stories.

Anyways, I actually think it will look great. No reason do doubt Vinoly architects.

You're correct. I had mixed-up my numbers. There are six, stacked towers of twelve stories each separated by double-height mechinical floors.

This will be a nice tower.

That would mean 82 floors which I think is a rather small number of floors for such a tall tower. I have thought this tower would have well above 100 floors

Floor numbers are overrated anyway nowadays. Personally I don't care how many floors this tower is going to have. What would you choose: a 350m tall building with 100 floors or a 430m tall one with 80 floors? I'd pick the taller one (considerung both are equally beautiful).

And yes, it's true that residential towers generally have a lower ceiling height than office towers.

I don't really care about how many floors a building has. I care only about it's roof height but it still surprised me since more floors = more floor space and as you said, residential floors are usually shorter so I expected at least 120 floors, after all, the more floors the higher profit

What is the ceiling height they are aiming for? My guess is that it will be over 4 meters.
You probably can't sell them with a ceiling height of 3 meters or so, which you would get with 120 floors in 430 meter.
