Because the mechanical floors are double/triple height but they just call them one floor I don't really know.

Appearances can be very deceiving. The new steel is an extra 15' plus the splices. When the 93rd perimeter steel was being erected the core steel that was erected was at 92M. Lately the core has been going up before the new perimeter columns. The new core steel is being placed at the top of 92M so the columns are about 30' above 92M.

Burj Khalifa has been completed for a long ass time now. It should have been put in the archives.

I'm sure that some palm trees around the tower need to be planted. Therefore it needs to stay in the construction forums.
