So these floors will be 420/89 = 4.72m tall? That's a lot more than usual.

I'd say lobby will take a lot, but the floors themselves will be regular. Penthouses of course will have more as well.

All floors are equal height..Because of structural facade..Lobby will be 3 floors high..Other floors equal..Hotel floors, residential, mechanical..

This will only take the roof height away from WTC, officially WTC will be higher. I haven't checked how this stands up against any of the Dubai towers, at least as highest occupied floor residential in the world.

1WTC's real roof should be 1401, the top of the communications ring, or at least considered a crown.

It clearly shows that the roof of the tower is 1380 feet. The top occupied floor is 1317 or something like that.

I see. Well, for me personally it doesnt really matter if it's going to be 1380 or 1420, as long as it stays over 400m.

I think the height is a very important design feature for this tower.

I'm kinda surprised by that too, I expected at least 100 floors even if it's not 432 meters but only 420 meters

I wouldn't be surprised if the developer "adds" floors later. This tower is 375 feet taller than One57, which is marketed as having 90 floors, when it actually only has 75.

Don't be surprised if 432's floor count changes.
