theres a few factors.
1. why go up 600m if you can see the same view from 442m.
2. the lev124 or 442m is one of the last large floor plates,so the observation deck will be adequate. it also has an outdoor area (roof of tier11).
3. Moving the many tourists up and down wil be much easier having 124 floors to ride up instead of 160+.
theres also safety issues.
It will be one of the highest ob decks in world no doubt.you get to look down 442m and up another 400m.amazing.im pretty sure the lev124 will be highest outdoor deck on a skyscraper? Guangzhou is a tower with apprx 440m for top deck?
