There's been only one double height floor, the concourse level, so far. The machinery levels, which are 5m high, are 5m over the entire floor.

The photos seem to show 5m, but whatever. I'll have to double check. If they are 4.7m, then that's only a loss of 3m over the entire height of the building.

A high resolution render of the old design. While not very helpful, it shows considerable facade details, including showing that the banding will cover 3 floors, not just the really high floors.

Ok, my 4.7m figure was wrong, so to clarify things, here's the real deal from DOKA:

Height: 810 m (approx.)
Floors: 147
Steps: 180
Step Heights: 3.20 m / 3.50 m / 3.70 m / 4.00 m

can somebody confirm on what's built already:
L16, L39 should be 4.80 m,
L40/41 together 5.30 m

Further up there's more to come above 4.00 m...

to me it looks like the DOKA heights are more related to the habitable floors. on the diagram however there are floors with the "odd" heights, they look like they are mechanical floors, i.e plumbing, machine rooms etc

A step is one full rise of the formwork. Usually one step=one floor, but a single floor may have more than one step, or three steps may be used to form two floors, etc.
