Hi all.

Upon closer inspection of the only clear section drawing we have, I don't think they need to skip a level in the mechanical levels between 14 and 18. There is a small mezzanine level above 15. They could follow the same naming scheme they used for levels 2 and 2M, followed by 4 and 4M, followed by 6 - like so:
- 17
- 15M
- 15

But this blurry section drawing shows they may indeed skip level 17 in the naming scheme as I labeled. It also shows levels 2M and 4M but doesn't label them. It also shows a level B3 and a Ground or Concourse (?) level which are clearly not on the structure so who knows ...

plan section_2 by Fury1961, on Flickr


The next levels above 38 are mech levels. It looks like there is a mezzanine in this set of mech levels as well but going by the blurry section above they may disregard it and skip level 41 in the naming scheme.
So the mech levels may be:
- 40
- 39

Unless we get a better drawing or they label the structure we may never know the full naming scheme.

The 2 (partially 3) mech levels require 3 form jumps because of their height.

Just wanted to post my thanks for the guys putting the work into this awesome thread, all the pictures and drawings etc. I'm sure I'm one of many who have to resist clicking on it every day to see the latest.

I went up the Burj Kalifa a few months ago, I'm not sure this project exactly moves the game on that much, it's an awfully big spire.... But taller is always better.

As if Jeddah Tower will have a smaller spire

That's a comprehensive jump! Almost the whole left wing jumped at the same time.
