Imagine Alain Robert base jumped once he reached the top, would of been mind blowing!

When he reached the top I wonder if he was a little confused about what to do next? The cops are usually waiting to arrest him when he reaches the top! But in this case they were more than happy to have him there!!

Hi all.

Well ... interesting ...

Thanks for posting Paris.

So the top office will no longer be for the Emaar chairman.

So level 154 which is described as 'boutique office mezzanine' is where the mosque ended up.

So that big top office is being fitout by Emaar and looks pretty much complete, isn't open yet - but will be soon.

Looks like I have some revisions to do to my plan.

Yet another indication this project is not yet complete, but will be soon.


Ray.

"The highest offices in the world"

But is that true? How many feet is the 162 floor?

Oh I see 2,038, well then that won't be true for long. And how many square feet is that floor plate?

How won't be true for long? The tallest offices are level 154. That's 574 meters for the mezzanine level, or 569 meters for the floorplate. Now of all taller towers (not including India Tower, as I know nothing about it's floor layout) Ping An will have the tallest usable floor at 538 meters (everything over is basically a spire), Shanghai Tower has the tallest usable floor at 565 meters. And these are tallest levels in general, I'm not sure these particular floors will be offices. Burj's record is here to stay.

True, but there are office floors above the hotel.

P.S. What about the China 117? Any chance it will beat the Burj?

Hi all.

Hi Blizzy.
That is an old version of my plan that still measures the level heights from the ground level as per the plans.
Here is a page from the current revision that measures from level B1 as per the official CTBUH measure.

[IMG]http://i56.************/f24ugy.jpg[/IMG]

I will be revising to version 6 (I think) this weekend in light of recent new info.
I will post a link to the zip in the coming days.

Hi Miami.

Here is something I did up a few years ago.

[IMG]http://i53.************/2z3qm3t.jpg[/IMG]

That corporate suite is over 4800 sq. feet.

On Burj Khalifa on high levels, at least as they say in their photo from burj-dubai original site (i have saved that photo a long time now, see below), above 155th floor there are mechanical floors escept of levels 156 to 159 that will be "Communications and Broadcast" use. Also those offices we talked about (in levels 152 and 153) their say "Corporate Suites".
