Will this Tower contain a viewing platform?

Although it most likely won't be that "landing" platform we've seen on renders.

Do you mean the one where the viewing platform is 'hanging' off the building structure?

That's the one yeah. As far as we know it's going to be a private viewing deck. A part of five story sky palace at the top of the tower. A waste of potential if you ask me but hey it's not like this tower is being build completely out of economic evaluation anyway

well we also have the "latest update" thing in the title so even when stickied people shouldn't freak out when there are no new updates because they can read it in the title and that was the only reason we unstickied it.

They can read it and still ask why there are no updates for two months (I bet it would be most of the time like that). When the thread is lower naturally less people come across it and so less people ask stupid questions. IMO it is only good for this thread to leave things as they are.

Anyway I don't get why is it so important to have this thread stickied. It is construction thread so it will be up anyway when there's construction to follow.

Honestly, I don't mind it either. It's the mindset behind the removal that kind a bothering me. A kind of mindset that gives way to much credit to crap by people with ideologic and social complexes. For ..... sake, the Pentominium thread was totally removed and archieved from the proposal section despite being already 30 levels up when stalled

Good thing you are not mod in international section with this emotional approach.

Pentominium was in archives for the same reason india tower, russia tower and nakheel tower are now, and chicago spire was before. It's called good moderating not social complexes.

Ok, let's get back at discussing balconies on residential supertalls, as well as IRL supertalls spotting
