I have a small question for folks who know this tower well. I have found this diagram of the top sections of the building and I would like to determine the location of the top occupied floor of it since CTBUH doesn't list it. My question is, is the viewing deck at 558 meters an occupied floor like the observation deck on the Empire Stete Building or is it just a mech floor?

If it has it been confirmed that there will be a observation deck located at the 559m level, it will be added to the building page on the Skyscraper Center.

I've been fascinated with this tower from the first time i saw it. It looks like a fortress, a gigantic building, it's just amazing, but at the same time, a bit scary.

i mean the last thing you want near your prayers is somebody intruding you, and this building this modern engineering wonder is clearly separating the people from the spiritual world, this is one major distraction if you note my opinion..

some hajjis have even complained that this makes masjid haram look like its near las vagas

Skyscraper Record Breaker of the Day: Mecca

Jan 11, 2013

The city that completed the most skyscrapers over 656 feet in 2012 was not in China, the United Arab Emirates, or the United States. Definitely not the United States.

No, it was Mecca, Saudi Arabia, the holy city of Islam, which completed five buildings over 200 meters high in 2012, including the Royal Clock Tower Hotel (above, along with the other ten biggest buildings of the year). At 1,971 feet tall, the Clock Tower is the second-tallest building in the world.

Overall, though, according to a report from the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, it was an off year -- a development that the authors say reflects a lag dating from the 2008 financial crisis. It was the first time in six years that there were fewer tall buildings -- 66 -- completed than the year before. In 2011, there were 82 tall buildings completed.

Still, it was the third-highest total ever for buildings over 200 meters, and there were several highlights. Dubai built four of the six tallest buildings completed in 2012. China built 22 buildings over 200 meters, in 13 different cities.

One non-highlight was tall building construction in the United States, once a skyscraper mecca. The U.S. completed only two buildings higher than 200 meters last year -- fewer than Canada, Australia, and South Korea.

Because there is no need. The diagram is wrong anyway. Wrong in its proportions. "Royal clock" is higher than other towers than is shown in this diagram.
