Lets also keep in mind that whatever was approved in Dubai is A freestanding STRUCTURE! not a building. Just see the rendering. It is 4 elevators from 0-790 meters than a 10-meter observatory space. Can be easily done. No comparison whatsoever to Jeddah tower which will have an OUTSIDE observatory + hotels + malls + offices + apartments + Resturants + ect.
167 floors in total (Jeddah Tower)
2-3 floors in new Dubai observation Towers

Could be a mechanical floor, where you need double the height for big water tanks, air conditionners...

Emaar stated in its press release that the use of the tower is still unknown plus design is not final so I doubt a building that tall will be only an observatory! Anyways rumors has it that it will be much more let's wait and see .. meanwhile let's watch Jeddah tower grow

I don't think so. The balconies should take an entire floor.

exactly, thats why i cant understand why somebody talking about 5 days for every floor what means 6 floors per month, when the real speed is just 2 floors per month now (average).

I like the detailed photos since i work as an construction group manager. It fascinates me how orgsnized such huge construction sites are. (They have to be otherwise it would be a horror to work)
