The only real historical research available is from a weather ballon in Abu Dabi which goes to 600m only. Pro rata the temperature should be about 15 degrees less at 1000 m.

I don't think having a balcony on floor 150 is a good thing.

Maybe it's for openings to reduce the wind load.

The holes are to reduce wind stress. I think I remember hearing it in some interview with the architect.

Since this tower won't have setbacks like BK it's probably necessary

We once have had a thread for a megatall in Karachi but that project is pretty much dead now. This may be a hoax as well but who knows...

Well this project is backed by Bahria town and they are the best company in Pakistan when it comes to setting up little communities, if Bahria can't do it, no one else can do it in Pakistan either, they also have a 60 flr tower under construction in Karachi. Lets wait couple of days to see if we can get more details.
