I have loved tall buildings since childhood, and to be able to see these projects rise through these posts and pics is the goods!
I have studied the renders and plans, and if I can offer my humble opinion on the setbacks....
First the 3 wings I will name as such; ( north is towards downtown )
one wing faces SZR, 2nd faces dubai mall, 3rd faces south
( named clockwise from the top like the setbacks do )
I will call the setback heights as highest floor ( not the roofs )
-tier 0 - level 6 -3rd podium level on all 3 wings
-tier 1 - level 18 -SZR wing
-tier 2 - level 25 -Dubai mall wing
-tier 3 - level 33 -South wing
-tier 4 - level 42 -SZR wing
-tier 5 - level 52 -Dubai mall wing
-tier 6 - level 63 -South wing
-tier 7 - level 75 -SZR wing
-tier 8 - level 86 -Dubai mall wing
-tier 9 - level 98 -South wing
-tier 10 - level 113 -SZR wing
-tier 11 - level 125 -Dubai mall wing
-tier 12 - level 141 -South wing
At this point the wings are gone and the setbacks are on the inner core with the first 3 facing the sides ( not the wings )
North side - T3 yellow crane, 120 degrees - Red crane, and 240 degrees - T2 yellow crane
-tier 13 - level 146 -North side
-tier 14 - level 150 -120 degree side
-tier 15 - level 154 -240 degree side
-tier 16 - level 157 -faces Dubai mall wing
-tier 17 - level 160 -South wing
-tier 18 - level ? -SZR wing
depending on the render tiers go to 22 or 24 and they could add more between the higher tiers .....but I think the lower tiers are accurate.
Hope you guys like the info ( my 2 typin fingies r hurtin )
The new round of pics ( by Smussuw - nice ones...) shows the next wing setback is right away, level 25 on the wing facing the Dubai mall. This tower is by far, the most interesting ever. From the podium levels to the complex setback scheme, too kool. I see the renders all show 4 or 5 levels between the upper tiers, so I see the that 189 ( or more) could be a possibility. Sounds good to me !
The info above is from the plansection drawing, but it is missing the bottom floor. The levels are: ( from bottom up )
B3 - the floor of this level is the raft.
B2
B1
Concourse - higher ceiling - still under ground ( but not on all 3 sides ? )
Ground floor
Level 1
Level 2 - top floor of podium level 1
Level 3
Level 4 - top floor of podium level 2
Level 5
Level 6 - top floor of podium level 3
( continue on from above )
On another note, I too would like to see any and all pics of earthworks, pilig work, and raft work from 2004. I have amassed 380 pics of this beautiful building ( did I say that I love this building. ) and up to the raft finished I have 4 pics ... I see on ssp forums on the trump tower in Chicago there is 50 ( I'm guessin... ) before the foundation was done. I'm betting we will see lots of pics on the Fordham spire during all the initial phases ( or at least, I hope ! ) Don,t get me wrong, the fact that I can watch the Burj rise as if I was there is the goods, but I want more ..

Heh, I didn't realize that this thing is so tall that pictures now need to be taken at a distance outside the "perimeter."

I have NEVER taken pictures from inside the "perimeter", however smussuw and Dubai_Lover always did.
