Yeah, I am wondering how this affects the starship size argument...??? (Because, while I lean towards a ship that's a bit larger than the TOS ENT, obviously, I never believed that it was meant to be as big as the ENT-D...but this makes the ship look near the size of the ENT-E!!!)

Enterprise-E was SMALLER than the Enterprise-D.

More importantly, even at its official length the NuEnterprise isn't anywhere close to the size of either of those vessels; volume wise, it's only slightly larger than the Ambassador class (and even then, only because the nacelles are so big).

I'd say it settles it at 2380'/725m they've been saying all along, and the only size that the bridge and lobby fit, and their placement is indisputable.

Here's a size comparison chart I made earlier

That looks to me like the floor plan of the real studio set, not of the floor plan of what is supposed to be under the bridge dome in the fictional universe.
I agree, he omittied stairs or any other access that would let the crew reach the bridge which is mostly certainly situated higher than the rest of the ship.

Which would not surprise me, but for the Cinefex coverage of the movie, p. 86 of # 134, specifically:

...Pixomondo created gravity shifting effects in the primary hull atrium, which Scott Chambliss built as a single-story set. "J.J. shot a big tilt-up inside the turbolift plaza", related Ben Grossmann. "We extended that five stories up and eight stories down, with glass domes at the top and bottom looking out in the space..."

The windows on the back of the bridge model......
