Hey Cul,
I noticed on your most current diagram, (which is superb i must say) on the Burj, you have 701m "highest floor" what level will that be? I am just curious. Thanks.

@austinsteev1
i was told roof no4 which is tier22 or 701m or lev185 is highest floor which is "inhabitable".
obviously it not like a fully air cond office floor like down on lev155 but it will have electricity and probably contain cleaning/ equippment for spire maintenace.
maybe this could be the highest floor people can climb to for a special view.?
its approx 10m wide so its not small .
its a 20floor climb. not too hard.
my office bldg is 23 floors and sometimes i jog to the top to get warm in winter.

You don't have to know who took the picture to know it was taken with a CANON EOS 30D

Culwulla,

are sure that there is not even a single Elevator that reaches to the 185 th Level?
Okay to g 20 Levels upstairs is not as bad, but how about the time?

Okay, to climb up 20 Floors is not as bad, but how about the time?

Sorry I had problems with my Internet-Connection somehow.
I couldn't see that I already post a message.
I thought it was closed.
