i watched the video again and he did say equivalent to over 200 stories, but i still believe in CUL's diagram for tier 22 or lvl 185 will be the highest floor. to me it makes no sense that he told us there's not going to be anymore habitable floors, he mine as well tell us the height. i have feeling soon hes going to mention the tower is only going to be 705m

I'm not rich but I think having the option to visit a higher observation deck at say at 600m would be a good thing all around. I bet if they charged $200 to go up there they will find people who will still pay it.

Also it shouldn't just be a basic observation deck. Think of the money they could rake in if they made it a high class bar/restaurant. A great steak and vintage red wine with your beautiful lady(or ladies) at 600m would be a great experience.

what about those who dont like wine? I mean I hate wine! yuck! your ideas of perfection are very, very relative.
But yes, the observation deck should be higher than CN towers atleast. Otherwise, it just won't be fun!

I would pay even more, no matter there is no air conditioning up there. Man, I'd climb the stairs and ladder just to be able to go to the extreme heights.

Such a shame. I was deeply dissapointed by this move from Emaar.
AGREE!!

well i think 442m is high enough for an indoor and outdoor deck. You have to think of the logistics of moving alot of people up to a small area. I can imagine how small the floor plates are at 600m+.
442m outdoor deck is more impressive then the 447m indoor space deck on cn tower!
As for the number of floors. Well yes the "official" floor count will be 162.
but im still sticking to my guns and the levels in the spire are about 43.
thus 205 in total. they should be labelled on each level on the stair case because you are actually walking up stairs and land at a level, which is 3.2m each.maybe the roof4 or lev185 should be a vip walk up , like what happens with some towers around the world. Sydney tower has an observation deck and now it has a walk up and around the turret for an extra $40.
anyway time will tell if burj dubai has higher levsl for public access.

how good would it look walking up to stairs and you reach lev200.
We'll be seeing that in the first base jumper youtubes! (assuming they will have access to the top tier and that it's safe to jump from there)

Anybody has an idea about the floor area on the current top floor? It looks pretty small to me...

They seem to be doing finishing touches to the 8th syeel floor now, heading for the 9th steel floor.

I seriously wait unitl the cladding gets to the top of the concrete structure, then BD will look really like the final tower.
