Note that the floor, ceiling and some walls are warm from someone else's apartment. My free standing home likely has worse heat loss even with small, efficient windows.

Somehow I doubt that anyone who can afford a unit in this building would care about their heating bill. It's likely equal to a rounding error on their monthly expenses.

the image from that article (as posted above also)

Are the squares, which i have circled, the sections for the windows?
If so, you can see what sort of scale they are when compared to the red lorry which i have pointed out on the left!
The windows are huge, which is why I've been saying that this will be a very glassy tower.

I just had to take a second look at the circles and arrow you drew above. For a second you had me there, if you know what I mean.

When I looked on the cams it really looked like they were pouring the core though right now they are indeed pouring the perimeter columns.

Im pretty sure the pump on the street is connected to the core pump. So there are all acting as one. So today it just looks likes they are pouring the columns. Tho i haven seen my cement trucks..

Yes, but doesn't it make sense then to directly pour the columns from the street?

What are the yellow beams that look like they are being used for floor braces? Haven't seen them before.

I'm guessing they are safety caps for the ends of the rods so people don't accidentally spear themselves. A guess however, not completely positive. Could be used to lie material on top of them.

I don't think that is it. What I am referring to are big long beams that are being used to built infrastructure - wood or other things are going on top of them.

Just wondering if they were going to be some new "automated" system, like the blue core system was. They dont' really look like that either but I hadn't seen yellow before and it seems curious.

I think on that they will put slabs, and then they will pour the next floor on this.
Just like they did before, only now the beams are yellow.

Those yellow beams are indeed for laying the formwork out for the floors.
