You can't say that for too sure



Some years down the road it could be redesigned and reduced in height, you never know.

millios-i have actual plans. im reading off heights. lev78 slab= 311m.
the mechanical ZONE 3 floors have huge transfer beams which is why its taken many weeks to build.
Once lev78 starts it will rise quickly again and ZONE G will consist of 20 floors reaching 404m high or lev101.This is where ZONE H will be which consists of 7 floors with 3 mech floors and 4 levels of hotel /reception etc. that section will take a couple of months to construct also.
