That real life picture fits one of the renders ...
This is what i came out with:

pic # 1 is the real one
pic # 2 is the render
Pic # 3 the real pictuer with modification of the wings to reach the
indecated level on pic 1 + the render on top off it,, and i think it came
perfectly
pic # 4 for ppl who say BD will be more than 800 m,(i doupt it) now
its 440 and 800 is allmost double the recent hight
(when playing around with the render as you see,, IT DOES NOT FIT THE REAL LIFE PIC)
[IMG][/IMG]
the 4th one is a stretched 1,000m not 808m. and the 1st one is a 705m

Yeah, I don't get this. It seems like most of the higher levels will be taken up by elevator shafts and have like 2 square meters of functional space.

I assume that the higher up they go, the less amount of space will be needed for elevators. From the bottom, everyone who wants to go up has to use an elevator, but by the time you get toward the top, the lower residents will never get that high so you don't need as many elevators.

Good point. I'd like to see a floor map of a high floor.

you can see from this overlay that them jagged bits above the mech level are going to be rather small and not get any bigger as someone suggested once the wing had caught up!

I was sitting at home a few days ago and thought to myself: "You know... a trip to Dubai in a few years wouldn't be too shabby." So I do a light light light check on airfare, and I didn't even bother checking for discounts because round trip from the West Coast to Dubai and back will cost over $4000 USD! That's in May of next year too.

That's a bit too expensive for me, atleast right now. Who knows, perhaps around 2010-2012 I'll be able to fund that trip...

But I've got to get to Dubai in person someday, I need to see this tower with my own eyes.

Cul, Mods see pages differently. You will see the deleted posts, regular members won't. Therefore your page view and page count may not align exactly with ours.
The other variable is that most people will have the posts per page set to "Use Forum Default" rather than a set number.
And yes, your bumped pic was on the same page.

that's what I said too...
even worse - by floor 160 (aprox) all that will be left is that rough triangular central core section with no usable floorspace outside this area - just glazing - see the following render:



The core has some holes in it that got bigger after floor 113? so there's some space - and I imagine some of the lift shafts will stop. I wonder if there's one or two stairwells after floor 113 though.

The floorplate is skinny and taken up mostly by core...
As Mr Architect? at SOM said while discussing that similar 600m 3 wing skyscraper/hotel proposed for Las Vegas - "the upper floors of BD aren't very efficient"
