And anyway... once you are on the top looking down the shaft will present the same view, just without the cables

Oh ya - I think you should drop whatever your doing and get us those 1,000 pics of the BD site prep from Henrik - don't make me come over there .....


What I'm saying is that tourists will not be able to access the the lobby of the residential part (of the tower) entrance.

As for the rest. let's wait and see

And from those lights in each "floor" is definitely looking up

Fury - As long as that transition from light to dark is a curb and not a wall, then it seems like it is so. The curving rectangles also hopefully are indication of an awning line and not desks or half-height walls; otherwise people wouldn't cross from in to out. From the lighter gray lobby though you can see the doors all the way to the obs lobby so that does make sense.

Maybe they're offering two ways to the observation deck (one from the residential side of the building and the other via the mall) if the lines get too long?

Nice closeup of the core and service area as well. Can defintely understand the bulk of what's explained on it. It'd be neat to see the other two portions at such a close up detail.

Let me repeat this again: NO tourist will be allowed on the residential part of the building.

First ... last ... and the other floors in between.

The Observation Deck is above the residential part of the tower.

Hi all.

Makes sense Altin. The set of doors between the residence park lobby and the corridor may be locked closed.

That being said - do I have to come over there ??? Or just tell me where Henrik lives - and I will go over there ...

Hey Real.

Not sure what other parts you were referring to - so here is the entire print of the Ground level. It is giant - 26 MB. Clik on it then download for full size.

Enjoy.
