Hi guys, one question, does any of you know the approximate height of the stores in this building? The distance between one floor and the next?

Thanks in advance!

Most floors are 4.000 m.
But some are different (mechanical floors etc.).

The diagram of the tower passes by in this thread from time to time.
There, you can see the floor heights.

Will the KT be swathed in fog in winter? Or will it be as hot as the ground below?

Great to see the formworks for the floors finally coming! Same will happen at the wings as well in the next weeks. That means the tower will rise alot faster soon.

Construction speed when considering the height and the size of the tower is more than acceptable
