Penthouse

I wonder how much the top residential units will sell for...
642m, 2106 ft., 160 floors up, sounds like it'd be a pain to go up and down all the time

It has 167 floors in total and 160th will be the last residential floor. My question is what will be the use of last 7 floors?

Arabic has separate names for iron (hadid) and steel (fulad).

I honestly think somewhere around 2020 because it took 6 years for Burj Khalifa to be built and this one is taller.

I'd say those would be technical levels although 7 seems like a bit too much for that purpose.

Not really, BK also has many levels with equipments above the last floor, even though they aren't count as floors

Though this is a megatall, so I'd say 7 mech floors feel just about right

What do you know about right.

Mechanical floors aren't located only on top of the building, they are spread out throughout the height of towers, in between the clusters, and this tower will NOT have just 7 of them, probably double of them in between regular floors alone.

And yes, the discussion was about mechanical floors above the top occupied floor.

have you seen the diagram, none has actually. We simply don't know how many floors are in total and what exactly the 167 and the 160 figures represent.

Why no one is uploading pictures of the building as I see the building is under construction?

Where did I say that I think there will be just 7 mech floors in the entire building, I never said anything like that. I was merely guessing how many mech floors might be above the top occupied floor

This site is for adults who are curious or interested in skyscrapers. The only thing you seem to be interested in is being a Dick. You see that is why I called myself dickhunter, not because my name is Richard Hunter or I have homosexual tendancies but to talk to you and you only. Please leave and I am sure you wont but if everybody just ignores you that would be most interesting especially as you are all alone in your little room with your little life.
i do hope that your weeny percentage of likes on your posts makes you feel very good.


Goodbye DICK!

PS - I will not be here when you reply and all others will ignore you.

So nice of you maceboy to create another (dickhunter) account just to troll this forum. Why so afraid, can't you say something from your own account or are you such a p.... to have to create another one, and claim you are a outsider, just for that?

And you claim to be a on-site project manager for some tower. So much for management skills. (Lay off the bottle mate)
