Yeah, knew that Chinese lucky number...Also looking back a page see debate about how busy Dubai airport is and if visitors surpass somewhere like New York. I am sure Dubai would be a great place to see with the biggest buildings and shopping Malls etc but no comparison to New York. Also the numbers must include the fact that Dubai has become a major hub between Asia and the Pacific ( Australia etc ) to Europe. A number of airlines have re routed through Dubai who once used Singapore as a stop over. It then depends on whether someone leaves the terminal for some time in Dubai or connects to the next leg. People in massive numbers actually go to New York as the destination. Europe has so many destinations relatively close together like London, Paris Rome etc that Dubai's rating may not be comparable taking all things into account. Hope to see it for myself one day but no matter how many buildings are built it will be itself which is what people will visit for. Not better than anywhere just different with its own character and history. Otherwise why travel at all...

The area is more than 11 km away from both the airports, plus the distance is not everything, the landing/take off approach angle matters more.

What the thread title says is irrelevant, this is what the project board on site says:

Yeah, okay. But the board also shows the old design, so there is no guarantee that that is reliable either.

There is no official confirmation that the other one is the final design and not some loosing proposal.

On the other hand there are precedents of designs changed half-way through construction, either in aesthetics or even structurally and in height, all while the project boards had the old renders. However, as I already mentioned, there is no official confirmation of redesign and change.

On top, or inclusive, of 'G' and 'M' (or 'Roof)?

6 basement levels

ground floor
floors 2-5 parking levels on podium
6 pool deck
7 club level
8-9 mechanical
10-27 residential
28 mechanical
29-60 residential
61 mechanical
62-88 residential
89 mechanical
90-93 duplex residential
94-101 penthouse residential
102-103 sky villa
104 mechanical

The Crown (67 m.) has a roof level and lift machine room, which is normally not counted as an actual floor.

I hope this helps some.

It doesn't seem that anyone here is sure. We'll find out eventually, but since the base of the tower is fairly similar in both versions, with the main changes being to the crown/cladding, we may not know for sure for awhile.

So back on topic, has the floor count grown any in the past week or so? What is it currently on floor 11.

^ Slow, but steady progress. If this was only 22 meters higher it would be taller than Nordstrom Towers roof height.

Now that they put number signs it will be easier to track the progress

2 weeks and no new news on the project. Painfully slow.

There is some progress on the columns but the formwork on the tower perimeter wall has not jumped. No. 8 is still the highest visible main tower floor.

From October 24th
No visible progress since the last update. I hope to the more progress when the regular floor levels are reached.

That photo is "old". Today I saw that the 9th regular floor is done and reveled now.
