That's quite unlikely.

Why do the floor plates for this building look so narrow?

Thanks for the collage! But I would like to point out that I think everyone is doing them in a wrong way, as in that diagram there is one of the wings pointing directly to the camera, while the other 2 are symetrical. However, in the picture you took there is one wing pointing directly to the left. Therefore, as the perspective of both pictures is different, the "simulation" you pretend to do might not be 100% accurate.

It would be good to see that collage with a picture and a diagram from the same point of view.

Anyway, great job you did! We really get an idea of how impressive this tower will be

The tower itself is going to be quite spectacular, but I doubt there will be a view from the top worth going all up. I mean what will you possibly see? Sand, and sand and sand aaand that's it. Don't really see the point, but if you guys have the money for it then gooo!
