Also as with Burj Kalifa the part that has made it most successful is the hotel (which I read is booked all the time), they have had a horrible time getting commercial tenants, and the condos sold very slowly. All that with it being in Dubai. Comparing this to Dubai is apples to oranges IMO.

It's the ground view perspective.

The higher up the increment happens, the smaller the difference is, when seen from the ground.

I say it again: The last two floors were Mechanical floors, these took quite long. Also at the Construction of Burj Khalifa these floors took alot longer to build than normal floors.
Construction should be back with arround 1 floor per week now. Rody also mentioned that they plan to reach 5 floors per Month after they reached floor 42 (current floor).

i think the building like this will be final with the exception of the steel spire, the steel spire is not angled and can be increased still, so that will be the defining factor of the final height

There are at least 3 different sketches. All are rather preliminary drafts.
