To me 162 are enough. Imagine evacuating 162 floors.

and yes there are over 40 "levels" above this which are inhabitable ,thus not included in count which i reckon is wrong.
I mean these levels are enclosed and accessible by stairs?
so if someone asked me how tall Burj Dubai is, i would say 205 floors.
but what get's me is, Tier 22 is were the highest occupied floor level . so it would be taller then 162. technecly that should be the last occupied floor level. and we are going with the 818m plans so it should be more then 162

Thank you Fury,

Yes, I remember the plans now. They have been an invaluable and rich source of information on the BD. It will be fun to see how onto them we were once BD is completed

Emaaar have not changed anything from day 1, the masterplan and exhibited models have not changed but the actual layout in the area has.

Dont expect any changes as its pretty poor stuff without any admin ownership from most of the web sites here.

Gosh I can't even begin to imagine how massive their parking decks are going to be.
I am not sure about BD but air conditioning for almost all new towers in Dubai is provided by chilled water supplied by District Cooling Companies. Chillers and AHU's on the roof is things of the past in Dubai.
