officially is 644m, but I don't know why I have the feeling that it is going to be a little bit higher.

Question: is Jeddah Economic City going to pull from the municipal water supply, or will it have it's own desalination facility?

I don't know too much about the relationship between police power and private development in Saudi Arabia, but this seems like an unrealistic assumption.

Hi Rody.

Do you know for certain that the naming scheme skips level 40 ?

I went with an old blurry section drawing when I labeled a pic last time. I wasn't happy with that since it doesn't follow the good section drawing we have.

The good drawing shows a small mezzanine level above level 39 that I would name level 39M, so the naming scheme in that area would be:
- 42
- 41
- 39M
- 39
- 38

Likewise the good drawing shows a small mezzanine level just above level 15 so that area would be:
- 18
- 17
- 15M
- 15
- 14

This would better coincide with the lower area on the good drawing that shows small levels above levels 2 and 4 and is actually labeled on the structure. This area is labeled:
- 7
- 6
- 4M
- 4
- 2M
- 2
- 1
- B1M
- B1
- B2

Let me know if you know for certain they skipped level 40 and I will assume the above is correct.

Thanks


Ray

so that people get to measure your arrogance altitude. I heard you are very close to breaking Baumgartner's record with that long neck of yours.

Hi!

for this section, there is no Mezzanine floor..and I will post the zoomed in for this section.
any way, there is something fishy when it comes to these floors






so as you see in the in-officially published section, it shows the numbering 38 - 42 spreading over 3 floors.

It would be nice, but I don't expect to see any cladding until spring 2017.

^ Aronz makes no sense, the majority (90 percent) of skyscrapers built in the last 10 years ahve been for residential, hotel or mixed use purposes. Hotels and Residences are some of the most profitable things to put in a building granted that sometimes it doesn't workout.

If you look at the first mechanical floor which is nr. 40 it seems there are two floors on the right side. That could be 41. Or what could that be then?

It could be! I need to ask specifically about this.
But what I noticed on most people working on this project directly, that they don't give straight or clear answer when talking about mechanical floors.
On the other hand, I personally believe that we cannot call a small slab on one side of the building a "floor", yet it could be the reason of skipping "40"
