Cut and pasted from www.dubaimegaprojects.com which consistently states the floor count several floors higher than other sources.

It's more official than burjdubai.com. James Allen of Favicon updates those pages both at EMAAR and at burjdubai.com. He gets his heights from a pre determined draught and takes his height levels from the boards themselves, which have rarely been right for the last 2 years. I remember when it jumped from 49 to 53 when it was at level 56, that's not accurate and neither is he. Because it's on an EMAAR approved website, everyone buys those figures as fact, but as far as I know, I'm the only person I'm aware of who gets GPS height readings directly from source.

This is getting pathetic, honestly. Skytower, you have been showing height figures on your site that differed even 40m from the official numbers, now the difference is "only" 8m's. This is a JOKE.

Hmmmmmmmmm 500 Meters... No sorry Sky-Tower i do not believe you. Its too fast to jump from 494 Meters to 500 in 2/3 days.... far too fast but only time will tell the entire story.

Until then this thing is 494 meters to me.

Cheers Sky-Tower
