Why these floor decks much wider than the others?

On most renders, you can see that some floors stick out of the hollow curved surfaces between the 3 wings of the tower.
(It is not clear if these will become some sort of balconies or not.)

I do not know if these details are only for the nice outlook of the building, or also have a function to break the heavy downwinds that will occur in these hollow shapes.

Even from the top of Abraj AlBait (601 M) in Makkah you will not see it.

Only because of a mountain between the two megatalls though. If there wasn't you would be able to see it.

It will take less than 3 years mate- interest in the project is gaining fast!

It's a beautiful building- slender, sleek, and striking
