lets say there is enough space right below the spire where its safe enough for a human (only one) to occupy .... and it goes for 1000 US$ only per year rent but you must live with the swaying , something like 1.5 meters in each direction ! would you do it ?

Yeah, why not! You can sell the photos you take from there for even more than 1000$

Here's the evolution of the design of the Burj Dubai.

Dequal, you're right. If someone lives on the 160th floor there's a big opportunity to earn money without leaving the building. One makes photos through window and then sells them via internet

Beautiful bussines

Swaying wouldn't be an issue, you'd quickly get used to it, in fact you probably wouldn't notice it at all. The most annoying thing would be having to get a lift to the 160th floor, then walk up 25 or so flights of stairs before you reach your tiny office. Then have to walk down those stairs every time you need the toilet. On balance i still think i'd take it.

It wouldn't sway that much, or even if it does at bad situations it wouldn't be like that regularly. The steel floors sway the most because of their flexibility but concrete structure right below it would be much stiffer than the steel floors. So the normal occupants wouldn't be too disturbed, thats the point.

i think it would be quite funny if it did sway though
i would like there to be one openable window, so that one could vomit out of it

Holy Jesus, this builing is more and more interesting... Honestly I love the cladding, is really nice. are the "sample apartments" ready?

and how about sales, are they going well? (of course if the place's not already entirely booked...). what's the average price per sqm?

mostly because of space
the higher you get, the less floorspace there is

the MAIN observation deck of CN Tower is 340m and revolve restaurant-350m.
The tiny space deck is 447m.
The lev124 observaton deck planned for Burj Dubai is huge. it is indoor and outdoor terrace.at 442m. not sure if you would see more of dubai if you had ob deck at 500m or even 600m? maybe more dust? better off closer to ground with a large floor plate for public use.

I think Sydney is generally an exception world-wide though, most airports are available 24/7.
Another exception being Sao Paulo-Congonhas (CGH/SBSP), closed from 11h30-6h. But that is operating now more as a domestic flights-only airport.
