I know the location, I thought you know some hidden features of Google Earth. But hey, if we measure on the 5th picture (night view), taking this distance as a correct measurement (it's clearly seen on the render), we get around 750m!

Take the distances I've used and you'll get again 1000m on that night render as well It's one set of renders so there's one model used on all of them. It can't have different hight on each take... Unless the graphic guy was on lsd that is

251 floors? If only the lower ~700 meters of the towers are habitable, that would leave a bit under 2.8 meters per floor, which sounds extraordinarily low for even a modest tower, let alone a luxury one.

May be they have increased the number of floors as well as the habitable height.
Mechanical floors are also included in it, but how many mechanical floors do they need 50, 60 or 70..?
I am pretty sure that it would have more than 170 habitable floors.

I think the 251 floors isn't actually the floor count, it's just how much the total building could basically have

For example The Shard has around 71 floors to its highest floor, but right to the tip they say it has 90+ floors despite just being a spire.

Counting unusable floors the total floor count could reach 200 floors or more easily. But it for sure won't have more than 200 habitable floors. I think the 170 floor number is pretty realistic.

Ah, much like how contractors used to say the Burj would (be) in the 200 floor range; ie. have the structural height of a 200 floor building, even though a bit less than that is actually usable and habitable space. 250 x 4m a floor is on target for typical floor heights so perhaps that article is just choosing to describe total height in a different way.

If you visit the CN tower, they'll also say a similar thing at the sky pods or decks. Such as you're at ~1,150 feet above the ground or ~360 meters or 114 building stories (when clearly a skyscraper would probably have higher than 10 foot floor to floor heights).

The upper pod is something I always recalled mentioning being at 147 building stories (and a tad close to 1,450 feet / Sears aka Willis), give or take 30 feet or so.

But if we've figured out the pixel measurements (good job on that btw), then sure, usable space of ~170 floors would be great even if it still ends up with a huge spire.

Unless they've simply increased the height but for some reason like others said, with this tower I can't see them propagating it radically upwards like how the Burj went. Maybe we will be all excitedly proven wrong but yeah, I'll guess 1,100 / 1,200m, tops.

200 floors (habitable) would be SICK, though
