No, the steel will be poured in concrete. Same as Ping An.

Great to see that they go far with experimenting with different claddings!

I've never seen that before. Usually they just slap on one or two types while the building is still short. Glad to see they're taking the cladding so seriously - lots of developers don't seem to do that.

great update! It'll still take some time until this will rise like Ping An. Probably until the end of the year, if not early 2015.

This and Kingdom Tower both rising together with triangle shaped cores. Which one will be the first to hit 100 floors first? Good times!!!

2015 sounds like such a long time away, but in fact it's only in a few months. We don't even have flying skateboards yet.

Well you can't deny it is currently incredibly slow and they didn't install new cranes since January The core could be a dozen floors above ground if they kept their pace.
