Of course I know that. The only reason I said "30 or 40 meters below 600" is because a lot of people were speculating that the top inhabited floor would be around 600 meters and so what I remembered was the distance below that. There have only been a small handful of die hard Chicago fans that I have heard even imagining that there would be a penthouse at the very top. (Well besides you in your previous post)

Perhaps it was 3m total movement making it 1.5m either side of centre. Just to compare, our local tower the Sky Tower (no affiliation to SSCs Sky Tower, that I know of ) sways 1m and its 328m tall. At +800m im sure it would have to be more than 1m. I feel somewhere between these two figures would be a reasonable assumption. Also consider im referring to the tip and not the sructure at habitable levels.

OH GOSH WTF?



Cul you are famous now!


Man if Emaar has denied (Grep san said something about not so accurate in steel and concrete framework) and possibly Emaar had to alter the height again to prove himself that the plan is wrong. but if Emaar remain silent it could jolly well mean the plan is correct! And BD is just going to be 818m tall.

then you will have plant maintenace guys which can access the next 11 floors to reach roof no4 @ tier22 or 701m high!
above this are 20 more platform levels which are reached by ladder, the highest of all these is the tier 27 or 768m high. This balcony area is only 1mx2m.("heavens gate")
then above this is the pinnacle which has internal ladder all the way to 818m.
I think highest floor or roof of Chicagos SPIRE is approx 600m.

So how many floors are there exactly? I count about 187 from your detail(including inhabitable) . If I was the Emaar boss I would just put my office on the highest possible floor, regardless of space, think of the views!

Think also of possible senarios where a passager jet crush into ur building and screaming at the top of ur lung won't get anyone to save you.

I've also counted the "floors" on that diagram and came out with 204 total. However "real" floors will most likely stop in the 170-180 range (mechanical, communications, spire tech., etc.). Above that, according to Culwulla's diagrams, will just be access ladders and such. I am guessing actual windows will reach all the way up the tower to right below the pinnacle, but the purpose of these windows is just to keep the look of the building consistent, not because anyone will be looking out of them. It'd be nice if I'm wrong though...

nope. There might be some spire maintenance levels but they won't be real floors, there won't be 45 of them either
