Burj Dubai ‘may go up to 200 floors’
Posted: Sunday, April 16, 2006




Dubai


Burj Dubai, the world's tallest tower, is expected to go up to 200 floors, a media report said.

"It has reached floor No 40. It is over 20 per cent of the total habitable floors," Abdullah M Bin Lahej, director of construction for Emaar Properties, developer of the tower, was quoted by Gulf News as saying.

This translates into nearly 200 habitable floors, dwarfing all other man-made structures and nearly double the height of the 442-metre Sears Tower in Chicago, which has the highest habitable floor at the 108th, said the report.

The building's height, which remains a well-kept secret, could go well beyond the estimated 750 m if calculated on the standard height of an average floor, it added.

Bin Lahej said major components of the tower have already been sold out.

Some of you people need to learn how to weed out bad sources.

Like this one. The 200 fl. figure is absolutely false. Not possible. They'd have to stop construction to redesign the tower.

if they wanted to make it 200st, they would have planned it like than from the start, or the foundations would be too weak to support it.

i dont think its gonna happen

No. It has been and will be 160 floors, give or take 5 floors.

You can tell when your opinions are full of shit when you're the only person on the entire forum who agrees with yourself

and for the record the article is 100% wrong, if exactly 20% was currently built, then it would rise to 200flrs, if over 20% is built, then it HAS TO BE LESS THAN 200 flrs
