btw,is there any room above 650 meters?
Hi Phil.

The BK has 163 above grade levels. The council doesn't count one mezzanine so they have it at 162 levels.

As I posted there is no level 162 ... like most skyscrapers the level count doesn't coincide with the actual levels in the structure.

If you want to learn about the level count and many other things about the BK read and view the files in my zip. I posted it to help you so you don't make uneducated posts like the one above.

Thanks.
I used the mobile internet yesterday,cause I cant view your files.
Now I have seen the pictures in your files.so if there is 162th floor,it seems that stand at above 630 meters,much taller than the top floor of Shanghai tower.I like burj khalifa.

Burj Khalifa with Rocky statue

We're traveling around the world for a year with a mini-Rocky Statue. Here he is in front of the Burj Khalifa. Normally Rocky likes running up steps but he let us take the elevator to the top.
.

You can follow his journey at: http://www.changesinlongitude.com/

Cheers!

Larissa and Michael
