I'm not a mod, I don't see deleted posts (I doubt the mods see them either) and the picturees for me are in different pages.

Is all on the settings of "posts per page". Most people have them as 20 posts p.p., some (Culwulla and me included) use the more appropriate 25 posts p.p.

Not only will the elevator shaft take up a bunch of room, but there will have to be a stairwell as well. Man, those floors are going to be almost useless.

That has been a point I have been trying to make throughout this process. Much of this bulding, the top 250 m or so depending on which final height you like, looks to be height only for the sake of height.

Yeah. So are they office space or residential? They could work well as small, VERY expensive, condos.

Which floors are you talking about? Obviously not all elevators will go to the top so the space taken up by elevators at the top will be much less than that at the bottom

Even a SINGE elevator and stairwell will take up a significant portion of the top floors.

Is there floor plans of the top floors like there are of the lower ones?

I don't think the very top floors are habitable anyway.

It's too bad. I think people would spend a fortune to be able to say they own the highest condo in the world.

Wow this thing is really getting tall!

But i have a few question about the building i thought you guys will know:
- Is this building gonna be made totally in concrete?
- And does somebody have some more information about the construction of the building?
- I also wondered how many workers are participating in making this huge building? I mean how many workers are there on the building site every day?
Thanks in advance!

About 3500-4000 workers on the site everyday.

Concrete structure up to 586m, then steel beam structure up to the top.

Welcome and... have fun 85 times

Oxygen too thin above? Or too cold

Anyway. If there is only a single elevator to the top floors, it would be a pain to wait for that elevator from the ground floor.. unless u wana change a few times.

I'm sure it would only go down to the first transfer station and then you'd have to change.
