It appears the dark blue was AS+GG's designation for required programming GSF space, whereas the lighter blue seems optional or for expansion (there's no legend so maybe I'm mistaken).

But even though the image is not too big and zoomed in and it gets horribly garbled, I see a programming final height of:

808 Meters / 301 Floors and a spire height of:
1,111 Meters

Maybe they can build to 1KM in concrete and do a steel top?

Rather I think that 301 was their target, then contractors all said you don't have THAT much money So perhaps the 170F we're seeing is a compromise? Or they're going to shock the crap out of us in a year or two!
1,111 Meters

There is no way you can fit 301 floors into 808 m. That figure had to be 201.

That wouldn't surprise me. Doesn't the Burj technically have about 200 floors if you count the mech floors in the spire?

Plus, 301 floors are highly unfeasible during our stone-and-gunpowder age.

This tower don´t give me the exciting like the construction of the Burj Dubai.
Maybe between 800 Meter and 1000 Meter the difference is not so exciting like the difference betweeen 500 ( Taipei ) and 800 ( Dubai ).

Yeah probably misread on my part. 301 makes floors only 2.7 meters / about 9 feet high. Suitable enough for standard apartments / offices perhaps, but certainly not for any atriums, luxury offices, residences and so forth. Most buildings of this scale seem to use 3.x meters or 4+ meters for their full structural floor to floor height, making about 3 to 3.5 meters usable.

201 would sound far more realistic and doable. That'd put each floor at 4 meters. Lose space due to double / triple height MEP, other luxury floors and such and yeah.

Now since we have diagrams showing ~170F, again maybe this was just an old plan or maybe what the secret will be. Who knows?! But a building breaking 200 floors would be epic.

Floor count doesn't mean shit, really.

Unless it sets some sort of world record for Skyscrapers, or anything else for that matter, it kind of does
