Those numbers pretty much matches what we saw on the master plan so it proves height distribution on these renders should be representative for most towers. Also Rody will you post some timeline numbers for the project which you said you will in your last post?

So 170 floors, aye? That would indicate the original 1007m plan was a false flag If the height adding goes similar to BK, we should be looking at 1200ish tower

Um not really.. Burj khalifa for instance have 163 floors, and Kingdom tower both at ctbuh and wikipedia is described to have 167 floors so no big floor count increase happen.
