He is correct. There will be the worlds largest underground car park here, with that underground road for service only (trash etc.). It will be almost completely pedestrianised, yet the downside or should i say poor planning of this is that there are only two exits and entrances (almost next to each other) for over 8,000 cars (as i hear).!!!

It's just a typo; count the underground floors yourself and you'll see there are just 5 of them.

Mabye they are getting to switch over to the residential portion of the tower. But that really dosen't explain why there are 2 same numbered floors.

Btw..anyone have that picture of one of the condo units?

Ive been believing it will have 50 floors of parking for like two years now. Its been such a wow-factor. And now i find out its just a typo ... well well

I would take quite some time to get down from the fiftieth floors with your car (they might have used elevators of course)
