They aren't working around the clock, but there is definately some progress that has been made! Can't wait to see this one rise, it's a beauty.

Can they still pour the concrete and start building the core over the winter months? Doesn't concrete need a certain temperature range to settle?

They can add anti-freezing liquid into the mix and/or heat the concrete during early period of hardening

Do construction crews typically do that though? It sounds a lot of work and extra costs.

There seems to be some nice progress going on here, despite the cold and snow!

Here are some pictures I've taken a few hours ago:
