I noticed that the model at Abu Dhabi Cityscape showed it with fewer (I think the original design) but on the other hand the numbers next to it implied that the current design is still on.

So who knows.

Nope, that was just a rumour made up by somebody here on this website in fact. Here is the thread where it was posted:
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...376012&page=60

There is nothing to say this is happening. Construction has slowed down in the past few months but it's still progressing.

However the developer said that they are/will be reviewing their ongoing projects so nothing can be ruled out.

No, the Penthouse Type A1 might be located only on floor 81 with other types of penthouses being located above that.

AltinD, do you know where I can get similar drawings of the rest of the building? I'm making a 3D-model of a floor of this building but the floor plans avaible on their site seems somewhat incorrect. Thanks!
