He has climbed 2 - 3 buildings in United Arab Emirates (Abu Dhabi) so of course he would know about BD.

The lake will cover the entire area in the pic that looks like it's a concrete pavement.

That view looking directly down on the city below must be awesome. Even very tall buildings, say 80 or more storeys, will look tiny. The tower is so high that I expect people living in the penthouse apartments will need to ring downstairs to find out what the weather is like.

Fixed it for you.

From official rendering, by pure chance I had it exactly double (20) My memory must be out.
[IMG]http://i13.************/8epwft2.jpg[/IMG]

EDIT: Oh brother. Just realised you were not talking about the "stripes" about about the amount of floors! oops! I will fix again!

EDIT 2: ok, this is my final try! There is not enough strips but I'm fine with it. It looks much more smooth and polished when fully clad. enjoy
