heres something to ponder..
The concrete superstructure will stop at aprox lev156 or 575m high and steel spire/pinnacle section will rise another 233m higher to reach 800m+.
Current height is approx 228m, thus the top steel section is higher then current height. lol

Sounds reasonable to me.Thanks.

^nah, thats the highest the concrete will be pumped.. there will be some levels above this to approx 640m.Also they may be 30 more uninhabitable"levels" inside the spire structure .more like platforms. this is why the number of floors is quoted as 189. maybe there for communications or spire maintenance access etc.

Please correct me if I'm wrong. I thought a country only owns 2,000 feet of air space. What I'm wondering is how Dubi gone through all the red tape to surpass 2,000 feet? Does the 2,000 foot limit still stand or it doesn't apply to Dubi?

If you consider 35 degrees warm then either you need to see your doctor (our average body temperature is 37) or you need to stand in the sun out there for a few hours instead of watching the weather through the window of your air conditioned car or office.
What crawled up your koolats? lol i was just giving an example on how people who live in climates with high temperatures can tolerate it much better than other people in cooler climates. Jeez chill man

In USA it is US Air Force who controls the air space over 2,000 feets. This doesn't necessarily mean other countries do exactly the same.

The Air Space over 2,000 feets belongs to the country below and it is NOT open space for everyone to fly.

I'm a bit confused. According to the crossectional plan, shouldn't we have already seen the concrete forms change into a nosecone for the
second setback on the wing that set back first????

The second setback has been reached, but the shuttering has not yet been removed. Note the top of the setback occurs one floor above the service floor. See the concrete reinforcement back to the core under the service floor and two floors above it. This connects to the top of the setback. Looks like this, h.
