Hi all.

Here is one of the pics posted by Saleh93 that I labeled. This is compared to the only section drawing I've seen so far.

[IMG]http://i62.************/35ce5pf.jpg[/IMG]

Level 7 F/F height is 29.925 meters.
Level 14 F/F height is 57.925 meters.
So it follows the levels are possibly 4.00 meters high in this area (7 levels - 28.00 meters).
Bear in mind these figures normally refer to the future finished floor height but they are close enough for our purposes here.

I judged the levels behind the forms but it looks close.

The structure is close to the floor of level 12 = 49.925 meters.


Ray.

Yeah you now see the difference because there are just around 15 gloors but when the tower will reach the 70 you wont see nothing much difference between week to week

Why don't they just build an exact copy of Downtown Dubai? It looks way too much like the Burj Area! The tallest tower in the world with a lake in front of it. The lake has fountains and on the other side of it there are lowrises, just like the Old Town in Dubai. And look: There's a big mall with an integrated highrise at the lake too! Just like Dubai Mall. And around the tower, there are high-rises and suppurates.... guess what... like in Dubai

Yes I still like the master plan... but maybe because I like the Downtown Dubai master plan too?

There is in my mind no problem with copying something good. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

I agree with KillerZavatar.
And the idea with a lake and a mall, why not?
I would be surprised when there were no mall and no lake at all.
Furthermore i don't think the render is final. Kingdom City isn't yet under construction so more realistic renders will come...

Why you don't count floors from ground level?

It counts from level one because the floors below it are under the later ground level.
So you may say they are underground floors in a while.

Sure and the next 10 years will be even more exciting, with most likely, the first Mile High Skycraper to be announced and begin construction. And who knows we may get the first 'true' Arcology to be announced (probably in Dubai - since everything's in Dubai these days) to finally solve the world's urban overpopulation crisis.
