Even though it can get times taller, it's very impractical to use any spaces above 550m, whether it's residential or commercial.

Looks like a Fata Morgana. Is it real?

How did you come up with the number 550, and why is it impractical above that?

Just think about the amount of floors that will be underneath that level, the elevator rig mass and its limitations and cost, the cab travel times, the staircase travel times (and hence, the emergency dangers) and for example, the view from there: BK's observation deck is around that height (being 148th level) and it's not the most scenic view, when you see everything like a map.

The view is NOT YET interesting. Imagine several towers rising up being 600m+ in one area it could look like the star wars capital.

Is this just the core? or it's the whole footprint?
