I'm really looking forward to seeing this unusual building complete and fully clad. The renders looked nice, but renders never show reality. The Index bucks the trend for fully glazed skyscrapers - this has a LOT of expoxed concrete structure and I think it makes the building a little ugly right now. I'm confidant it will look a lot better when finished though

The building is still on the 70th floor so it didn't desereve any special treatment today, however a group photo with Burj Dubai was possible.

Ive been wanting to ask this before. Since when did they reduce the number of floors from 86 to 76? Or are the other ten ones underground?

ive worked out, the 71st floor is 40th residential level.
so then theres the large plant level that is above it which looks equal to about 3 floors?
thats the main roof area. then theres 5 more levels which are residential. then those 6 fins that are just structural.
summary-
we are currently 40m from top of fins.
thus 328m-40m=288m
the 71st floor =288m.
main roof=300m.
top of 5 penthouses=320m.
top of fins=328m
ill amend my diagram tommorrow
cheers guys

Are there any floors behind that top glas section?
If there aren't, I think it would a little bit ridiculous.

Are there floor plans available for the index ?

And for the residential part of the building, can it be defined as a "classic multi entry type" as per definition below ?



(more info on the definitions there : http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=604687 )

That is, are most if not all of the flats in the building traversing flats (natural light from two opposite sides) ?
