Perhaps there will be a safety net (not shown in the render) between the barrier and the outermost perimeter? Or maybe it will be set a few feet below, if they don't want it to be too visible.

clearly, but the barrier has to be a joke (doesn't even come up to adult's waist.)

It's obviously just for illustrative purposes to show the tier formation; there's no guard rail at all on the platform at the top of the stairs.

456m or 457m, then. Completely guessing based of the 454 meter height.

Additionally, those elements disprove that POS render that was under discussion on the previous page.

it doesn't matter if finished or not. only the topping out counts, and i'm sure the burj will top out before.

it only will be the tallest tower(the same category as CN Tower ) and second freestanding structure until Tokyo sky tree completion but never the tallest structure. Great pics Louis-hk

the tower's exterior is just basically all tubes... I never seen any spire made of tubes in my life.
