Cables will have to be attached pretty soon during construction phase or else some serious storm could overtop half constructed tower.

I think its wayy better than white (if it is really the case) .. white in some cases might make it look cheap and tacky the darker the better

Literally this building is going to look like an space elevator during its construction phase.
I still don't quite get this issue. The cables are not all attached to one point underneath the bulb. The cables are attached all the way up from the bottom part to right underneath the bulb. They will just install the cables from 100m or so up and add more and more the taller the tower gets.

Wait, are you saying that they won't install any telecom gear on this tower? That sounds quite wasteful to me. I know its going to be used for various other purposes, but that doesn't mean that the tallest structure in the world wouldn't be amazingly useful for an antenna.

Who said there will be none (Unless they stated the opposite )

It's just than this is not the main purpose of the tower

What circular in design? If you are referring to the setbacks (in BK), those actually facilitates the wind sheer resistance of the structure

Roughly extrapolated the image to about 170 floors equivalent, if we assume 20-30 below the vantage point of the render, and the brightest blue top parts being skipped in the count (though I did count the mechanical floors or unlit gaps in the main shaft of the tower). The spire section is about 35 floors by itself so again something in the 200 floor equivalent range makes sense.

It still remains a tower, the way it's been presented previously. This raster collage was probably made by somebody's left foot outside of Emaar, and probably for other than advertising "The Tower" purposes.

A famous Austrian-German political leader seems to be on The Tower judging by the render guy's greeting.

All buildings are presented as towers, Burj Khalifa is presented as a tower (Burj = Tower) Jeddah Tower and so on ... it is just very silly to take the term "tower" when used by developers seriously. This one we have 0 idea about number of floors at this point or how many will be usable. Emaar didn't specify we just guessed from early renders released. Any guess is a fair guess at this point, nothing is set in stone.

Well one thing thats for sure is that whenever it gets at least ten meters off the ground we'll immediately know if it's actually going to have floors running up the entire length of The Tower, whether they're usable or not is another question, but really. Why would they have so many floors up the entire thing and not use them?

Because they want to finish it by 2020. If it will have occupied floors on most of its height, then it will be topped out at least 2 years later, and opened only in or after 2023.

Or they could just "rough in" the floors as they race up.

So chill Mr. smarty pants Oh aren't you busy working, what are you doing here, you don't want to waste your time on such a vain and boring project when you are working on something amazing!
