Knowing this project they'll get hit with another stop work order by the time they're done with the podium, though at least then there'd be some sort of structure at this corner.

You know I was told "relax" in a now moderated comment, because I suspect of my enthusiasm of the above grade component of this project finally seeing the light was a little too much for this character. But after Mr. androiduk (a name that sounds oddly Aphex Twin'ish, which is also pretty cool) update, I really thinks the excitement is long overdue! So let's break out the champagne as this project is finally and thankfully moving forward!

And I hope no one minds! <3

@ Craig White or other UT MODS

I've been engaged in a long conversation with mods on another forum about The One's final specs and wondered if you could shed some light for me - in a nutshell how/when was the (UT) 1,012 ft / 308.44 m and 85 storeys established for The One. I can't seem to find any definitive source like approved planning docs.

Craig's May 2017 story references the pic below by saying "According to the image above, the roof height is at 306.3 metres, but parapet wall extends beyond that. A note explains 'top of structure to be confirmed'. When a height of the parapet is firmly established, we will consider that the final height of the building, and update our records yet again."

Indeed the image shows the 306.3 metre mark to be below the top of the structure. Did approved docs establish the height of the structure as 308.44? The drawing also refers to “83 levels” as opposed to the UT description of “85 storeys”. Which is true?

Thanks in advance for the help.

This is a more recent drawing:

1bwtop308-6m-jpg.230666


It confirms 85 storeys, and when you add the 3000 mm thickness of the beams to the 305.6 m height of the TMD roof, you get 308.6 m in height.
