Yes, that looks like it's definitely the 818 m version.

well the reason behind that is because the actual height is a well kept secret. but plans show it at a height of 818m's high. other's show 808m, and 705m. but those were the old designs. but the height may go higher next year

tnx for a prompt answer! so according to this, we shall wait and see, right? if we take everything into account what has been done in dubai until present day, and what are the plans for the future, i would be quite surprised if they don’t try to make this tower even higher. what amazes me the most is how much they are willing to spend just to make something that no one else has.

Hi all.

Yes Cul - I agree they will not be deviating from the plan at this point. I was just commenting on others' hopes for changes for a taller structure. They did alter the plan once they got above level 107 and that is not the only change in the plan.

Here is some more from the Skyscraper Museum that I've had for 6 months - I thought everyone knew about the museum.













I emailed them months ago to try to get some of those pics - never heard back from them.

This diagram is unique.. it shows the lift shafts color coded, and corresponding to the lifts shown on the floor plan.. this is the first time I have seen this. It makes it clear which lifts top out at what floor.

So do all of the lifts reside in the central core, or are there any low rise ones perhaps in the wings?


Oh, and I personally think it will be from 800-1100 sq ft at the 700m range. I think that there will be some private Emaar state of the art office spaces in this range up to floor 180? In that case, there is probably more elevators that arent shown in the diagram (there certainly isnt 50 of them there!). I believe that there will be probably 1 lift that will go up to almost the tip of the spire...

Hi all.

Here is some wind protection info. Looks like their going to have some curved glass walls under sort of louvered roof panels. I also heard somewhere they will have self locking doors to the terraces for when the wind is too strong.





Enjoy.
