I would not mind having a balcony at floor 144. The view would be nice. And the wind would be apart of that experience.

Ahh!!! Thank you.... mh... so is that really in top of the tiers? Must suck if you have an appartment on the wings and have to look at this through your window.
I thought this would be terraces... of the most expensive appartments there.

Are my eyes deceiving me, or is that the start of the second steel floor?

FTL: No second level of steelwork yet, I think thats the crane A-frame in the pic.

By the amount of steel hoisted up over the last few days, it cant be far away from starting.

Hi Helghast. Look back a few posts at the plan of tier 16 I posted. It shows the shape and size from the start of the steel. The grids on it are 4.5 meters so should be easy to figure out the approx. sq. footage.



VERY Approx. - 370 sq. meters or 4000 sq. ft. - the size of this tier. The size of the setback should be easy to approximate also.
