There maybe a dis-advantage in living toward the top of the tower. I wonder how long you have to wait for the elevator each day (especially if all of them just started to go up)...and you have to wait...seeing that all of them going to stop a floors higher than 80F. I think the excitement would ware off and the frustration of daily life would set in.

there are 5 dedicated high floor elevators supposed to skip fthe first 50 floors.

i live in a 200m+ building right now and can tell from experience the actual distance between ground and your floor isn't the issue really because they move real fast. only if they stop too often you will have to wait awefully long.

at the end of they day the waiting time will be slightly more than on the lower floors of course. though that's the price you pay escaping the street noise!!

Well that is good news! ...but you bought your great 90F apartment and find you are afraid of closed elevators and your wife is afraid of heights. and your kid wants to use his new parachute he got from Christmas but not in ways you intended.
...CBS could create a new drama series in Dubai called "Life on the 90th floor".
