If Emaar wants to invest in another supertall of this size, surely they must be able to afford a different design.

575ft when you calculate with 825m, and 555ft when you take 819m

Whatever final height you bases your calculations on, the remaining part to be build is the same, since the difference is only at which point at the bottom you start measuring from.

Hey, doesn't this blank area at the top look like the result of some replanning to you too, probably due to some height issues?

image hosted on flickr


Because usually this type of wall was the core that received later the typical Burj Dubai terraces in this spade-like shape.



Or am I loosing it?

I don't get it either... The core gets built first, then the wings and terraces... so what you see there in the earlier stage is quite normal. I don't know if this is your answer?
But you gave the answer already "Because usually this type of wall was the core that received later the typical Burj Dubai terraces in this spade-like shape. " yes and they have received later those typical burj dubai shape. What is the point of posting last year's picture?

I understand what you mean. Its not a blank area. If you look at a bigger version of the first photo, you can see that there are "tiny" floors built on that side of the tower.

those tiny floors (resemble balconies) are basically small ledges outside of the small square windows. these are the "boutique" office floors. very small floors. thus the concrete windows with glass infill behind.It will become clearer once glass goes on,
hope that clears it up.

Hi

I noticed those tiny floors, and exactly they are what made me think that this is the compromise they made.

But IANAL

its no compromise or replanning. its the design of the smaller boutique office floors.
no big deal.
