the highest apartment in Burj Dubai will be level108 or 325m.

the highest apartments since 1969 is on floor92 /307m in John Hancock centre, chicago



Chicago spire will hold the record for highest apartment being 565m.
so we may never have people living 1000m high.
500m maybe be limitation for now.

With emphasis on alot of new safety technology, yes.

For example, evacuation via the elevators, where the shafts are positive air pressurerized, structural accounting for seismic, terrorist, bombs, etc., intermediate open air floors for rescue, ban on toxic vapor flammable materials (carpets, etc.), fire sprinkler systems, etc, etc.

I assume this poll is independent of cost (top floor chicago spire=$40million)

Other than that, of course; what the hell would stop me? not afraid of heights in a skyscraper

Hell yeah I'd live in one of these. Give me the top floor please. This is why we admire these buildings, we want to live in them. It's kinda like saying you want to look at a girl but you don't wanna **** her.

i would kill to live in the highest penthouse in the Chicago Spire.
No shit, I mean seriously... $40 million USD seems like a bargain to me - I'm not being sarcastic either. If I had $100 mil or more I'd do it in a heartbeat! Besides the height and architecture of the Spire, you would have a 360 degree panorama of one of the best skylines anywhere plus the lake.... :cheers:

If I had a ton of money I'd buy a nice house to put my family in, not a 500m rat trap. I wouldn't want to live in a tall building.

Rather crude way of putting it...
But down-right hilarious and definitely with some truth to it...

"Umm, not sure"

I wouldn't want to live in the BD - but if the building had what I needed I wouldn't mind living there no matter how high or insane
