A lot of people asked, but looks like no one knows the answer.

if they miss out floors because of superstition why are they saying 118 floors when it looks like 106 is the actual amount , couldnt they have 39a,39b and so on instead of missing and still have the total when finished?

They could have...

But they didn't. I think it would also lead to confusion, like mix-ups between the two 39th floors.

nice updates btw,

I think he means some numbers have been skipped in the numbering of floors in the building (eg. 14 and other floors due to superstition).

the tower has 118 floors but as you know 4 is an unlucky number in china thus some floors are missing (24th, 34th...)

ICC officially has 106 floors

Great picture, especially the first foggy one. 2IFC and ICC look like some monsters there.
