Cheat? dude, you don't "cheat" on floors. Can be mechanical floors or something else, but I doubt the architect thought "oooh yea, le'ts put two floors instead of one, so some weird person on skyscrapercity can complain...".

But who knows, maybe he actually thought it...

The lobby/base looks like it'll be ~10-12 floors. I counted 88 floors on the render, so they'll be able to call it 100 floors total.

That being said... they were able to squeeze 110 floors into the original towers and it'd be nice if they could do the same here.

Looking at the webcam today it seems that part of the floorplate for B2 is going up just south of the core. I don't remember seeing that formwork and it seems that it is at the same level as the bottom of the formwork, which is 2 floors up.

I know, but they must be counting it as 10+ floors, because if they don't their floor count won't even reach 90.

there 12 floors in the base part as you can see on the renders (if i didnt count wrong). and you guys say that there are 90 floors in the upper part. that equals to 102 floor. freedom tower is supposed to be 108 floors. so what about the 6 missing floors?

Who cares how many floors they say it has. We all know how tall it will be and that's really all that matters.

true...

...but if anybody really wants to count all the floors. The best way you can do that is to wait until the tower is completed and count all the floors when you walk up the stairs, all the way up to the roof. (you can also go down if you're lazy)

maybe the underground floors are counted in the total number?

Is this floorplan accurate? I understand the reasoning behind putting the stairwells like this, but I don't see any indication of them on the renders. It also doesn't make sense given how the geometry of the building changes as you go up.

do you mean the stairs at the corner? the stairs at the corner are just for the lower portion of the building i think.
the main stairway is in the central core.
