OOOH. PS CS3! That's a far cry from MS Paint.

Anyway, Sky Tower, I'm never telling you any of my secrets.

You evil Sky Tower, pure evil!

... Good work getting involved with the right people, but I do pity your curse. I will send post cards of the opening of BD in a couple of years to the mental asylum you will be residing at :P

All in all though, those that love this building will NOT be dissapointed!
I'm skeptical. I can see them maybe extending the steel structure, but 200 floors? Are the top 30 floors going to have 5 square meters of space?

I think if Sky tower heard it being different then 1011m he would have said "by the way i was wrong, sorry" so I think he just had his estimates confirmed! p.s. now instead of speculating on the final height we can spectulate on what Sky Tower was told! lol

Remember that BD would have approx 165f as is without taking into account any speculation about the height. Adding 40f will prop it up to 205f which is about a conservative 120m difference @ 3m per floor. That leads to a total of approx 855m if we base ourselves on the height change to 750m that has been widely accepted.

What do you think?

Well, the latest official EMAAR (released November 2006) HD render shows 214 floors!
Obviously, the top 30 are not really useable....but still it's 214 floors in the picture! L206 being 8m accross is still not 'tiny' by any means!
In Adrian Smith's book the cross sections were shown at L171, with 2 more setbacks above before the pinnacle, so draw your own conclusions from those!

Hi all.
I did a comprehensive tier / level analysis a few weeks ago, but I think it was too in-depth for most people. They counted levels as doubles at 41, 73, and will have to count 3 more doubles to get to 114. Level 114 is the first level above the narrow core on the right side of this shot.

[IMG]http://i5.************/6frfyj4.jpg[/IMG]

Count up from level 114 and the next side to narrow is near the top of this shot on the left side at level 126. This follows the original elevation drawing for floor count. 126 is the first level of the next tier. Since the only true markers are the small white markers for the worker elevators that are only marked up to level 90 we will have to wait for confirmation. The small white markers do agree with the painted level markings but those are too small up this high. I feel like reposting my earlier analysis but it would probably be pointless.

On another note - some pics:

Lastly - Not sure what you all use as a picture viewer. I have been using the windows picture and fax viewer in XP. I have an old laptop with win98se and have been using paint shop pro 6 on it. Today I found the best viewer I have ever seen. Now using it in XP and win98. It is free and I find it blows away anything I have used before. It is called FastStone Image Viewer Ver 3.2. Google it. Offtopic - I know but I find it is the goods.

Enjoy

Come over for a few shots of Everclear and you will feel it in your bones, and then I have just one question to ask you.

As you can clearly see in this picture the top of the double sized mech floor gap ends at L114.
Now count up from there you can see the slightly higher double floors of the skydeck at L124. (above and below the one with a big white line going through it!)
The floor above this is L126 as the skydeck will be classed as 124-125 and on this side of the picture the construction pinnacle goes up to L129 and they're another level higher on the far side for tomorrows L130 pour!
