Thanks for the wonderful photos and information, oscillation.

We see in the schedule that by year's end, this building will be about as tall as ICC in Hong Kong, or as SWFC in Shanghai.

Is there floor space on those outer curved edges, or is it like Jeddah tower with just
a facade?

Are you serious? Take a close look at the pictures, you will see there's floor space continuously all around the core. I would be very happy if they did it at the KT too.

Facades are designed by architects. They even choose the materials. A client that can afford to build an AS+GG design is very likely to spend extra money on a top notch facade as well.

Most of the time, marketing renderings are just conceptual models that show the idealized vision of the architect. Reality bursts this bubble more often than not unless the client is very serious about the project and can afford highest quality claddings.

I see and I understand that about the vision vs reality. This one seems to have the cladding from the renders although a different color it's still very top notch as is expected of greenland, they have a few projects u/c right now.

I see 2 mega columns, and two cross braces, and a tiny amount of floor space. Any fleshed out floor plans?

And Jeddah tower will not have floor space there. Just facade.

Between the core and the mega columns on the edges there is a good amount of floor space. The mega columns and the cross braces might block some of the viewpoints from inside but you will still be able to see through the windows underneath the cross bracing.

At least there are openings at the edges and there are dudes hanging out there... There might even be a walkway around the edges which would be cool.
Nonetheless it's a lot more than what JT has...

According to ADRIAN SMITH AND GORDON GILL, the architect this tower will 3,250,000 square feet (300,000 square meter), only about 75% of the area in the Shanghai Tower, however this tower will be 686 meters tall (tallest in china) and have 120 floors, the same as the Shanghai Tower, also this tower is just as beautiful as the Shanghai Tower.

Did ADRIAN SMITH AND GORDON GILL really say "this tower is just as beautiful as the Shanghai Tower", and "There will be a Ritz Carlton"?

Take a look at the right side of the pic. There is like others said enough space.
