wow, great pix and info.
yes the original 705m version had ob deck at lev142, but newer deign nas put it at lev124 or 442m. probably because its a huge floor and has an outdoor area (roof of tier11). there could be a vip deck or lounge up higher?
i would say core formwork is at 132fl or 476m./1560ft
great pix imre

beautiful, but... tier 11 was at 126th floor on most renderings (and also in the power point presentation by Emaar) but now it seems at 124th floor, 12 floors above the tier 10, renders showed 14 floors above the 10.
This seems to be the first significant difference between renders and the tower... we'll see the next, it will be 142th floor? A couple of month and it will be some evidence

They are going according to this render up till now. You can clearly see that floors 123 and 124 are higher than the others. L123 is below the tier11 and L124 is above. But the last floor below 5th mechanical floors is only 135 so only 3-4 storeys to go. Mechanical floors are so 136-137-138?

^your fairly correct.the tier12 or 5th mech floors are 136/37/38.the next tier is 146fl and next tier 150fl.then 156fl, 161fl.
where you show lev160, thats 156.where you have 170, that about 167.

[QUOTE=urban.kovac;13536778]They are going according to this render up till now. You can clearly see that floors 123 and 124 are higher than the others. L123 is below the tier11 and L124 is above. But the last floor below 5th mechanical floors is only 135 so only 3-4 storeys to go. Mechanical floors are so 136-137-138?

This is easily the best render we've seen yet!
Looks like the right colour windows too.
And the floor counts look good.
I like the way it shows the very top floors clearly and even the wingtop glass wind protectors! Great stuff.
Where did you find it urbanK?

And yes - 136, 137 and 138 is right for 5th mech. And 4th mech has 3 levels too (109, 110 and 111).

My calcs has this render scaling up at 804.8m.
I see room for pinnacle increase in this render because it's only shown there at 1.66m wide = 5.4 feet wide.
I'm quite certian it's much thicker than that in reality ( about 3 meters ).
This might be a nice try to hide the real height of 835m which just so happens to be my pool guess. ;-)

The big .pps info that went around last fall has the pinnacle at about 2.5m to 3m wide.

The render pinnacle is shown at 1.66m to hide real height.
Very sneaky, iiiiiiiiiiiinteresting, and most unuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuusual.

Love the banner flag showing the render.
