the plans were never approved by the city, so we'll never see 500m + SWFC. maybe another has a link to the source

we'll have to see..that is interesting..what you are saying..but there could be a change in decision...like the one of Taipei 101......maybe they did aprove it...and they lied about the unapproval..that is also a possibility..I personnaly hope so..
And i know how they can raise the building too...they can set the observatory deck higher...at 500m..i personnaly as an engineer .. would do that

Could anyone tell me the purpose behind those horizontal black lines, such as seen in the photo above?

Can't wait till they pass level 96!

Those are vents for mechanical/refuge floors. The tower needs some fresh air apertures somewhere.
It's necessary on "refuge" floor, as mechanical ventilation (air conditioning) could be out under fire, for exemple.

There are such floors every 12 levels in this structure.

you're right Skymyhusband .....those floors are implemented in each skyscraper...they have a very important role in security..in case of fire...and they also have a special escape exit...in case of urgent need...like fire..or..greater incindets..like plane colisions...(Never Again !)...
