not sure about bldgs in HK, but the highest balcony is on lev75 penthouse of Q1 which is current worlds tallest apartment tower.
Its 217m high.
you can see here the penthouse levels with balconies from lev71 and up.
lev76 is 3 fl from top)



The highest on Eureka is lev65 or 205m.

The soon to be highest balcony will be on lev95 of princess tower at 350m high.

Eureka Tower is MUCH taller to roof. Q1 claim's world's tallest residential tower because of it's massive stick.

Thankfully yes...I'm getting tired of hearing over and over about this technicality that Q1 is officially taller crap...seriously just because the almighty CTBUH says it's taller that wow it must be taller...it really depends on ones definition of which is the tallest. It's obvious my opinion doesn't count but you don't have to be an Einstein to see when both buildings are compared side by side it seems ridiculous that a stick would account for total height when one can actually reside and lookout at a much higher level.
I know I'm going to get rhetoric over this but in my opinion a building should be acknowledged as the tallest when the purpose of the building is to be habitable to the highest point which Eureka is.
I agree Q1 is the tallest but to structural tip and should only be classified as the tallest if it was referring to it's structural height and not as the tallest building which I stress infers habitability.
But yes thank heavens another building will go up to smash Q1's title..yes childish I know but so was the lame excuse provided to Q1's credibility...there enough said.....
