Although, is it me, or do the floors look awfully small? It could just be the distance playing with my eyes, but if you compare the size of construction trailers/offices in front of the building, to the size of the floors, it looks like they are about the same size. Each floor has to be bigger then 6 feet tall, right? But I guess unless you know how far the trailers are from the actual building, then the prospective could be way off.

It's amazing how many floors of platforms they are using. Interesting setup...

That's not what I meant. Look at this photo from Al-Saif's previous update..



It looks like there is a floor beneath that tall floor but, am not sure

Looks like you are right!
When the total formwork is a few floors higher, we can see more details of the lower floors.

Anyway, I assume that Al-Saif is an engineer, and working for this project.
So he will certainly not be miscounting on the floors!

It seems to me that the lower levels are double-height or at least much higher than the regular ones. That means what he counted there are not the actual floors. I think we're still at the 3rd, maybe 4th floor.

That's pretty much what I was getting at, when I mentioned the floor heights a few posts back. Plus, the form works haven't climbed yet, above the raft. Just doesn't look like 6 floors already.

In the recent video render that spun around the tower 360 degrees there was no viewing platform to be seen. But now it is back.

Hopefully, it is going to be there. It's certainly one of the things that add distinction to this tower!

Guys, sure the platform is going to be there. It doesn't make any sense that they removed it. Especially, when it's profitable and a lot of people would like it

In some renders, it doesn't show up..basicly, because the platform is from another side of the tower or the render's maker maybe forgot to include it which I don't think is the right reason

Furthermore, the platform is there in this render but not so clear

That almost 1 minute video was a crappy one
