Probably because of the brownish colours. Obviously there are a lot of recent buildings visible also.

Needs a bit more 'wear' to look 80s.

No.

Theoretic:

It took 6-7 years to build the Burj Khalifa(160fl)
160 floors x 6,5 = 1040fl.
6,5 years x 6,5 = 42,25 years + 15 years( bigger foundation and larger diameter of the building)

= maybe about 77 years. 150 years is too long

This building has not a large diameter. If it had had more than five elevators (f.ex. 8 or 10), it would have been difficult to find space for the rooms.

But yes. I agree. This should need more

You agree this building should need more?

I'm pretty sure it has been well thought out as to how any lifts this building should have... especially when catering for million/billionaires

Amazing how all those buildings that now look so tall will start looking so short when the new ones are built.

From that perspective the pyramid might steal the show, though.

Perimeter forms are up! (Floor 47)
I'm guessing that the reason that the core is taking so long to rise is that the core form is currently on the first mechanical floor. If I remember correctly, the last mech floors were 35-36, so these should be 49-50. We'll have to see once they raise the forms.

I noticed that too... There used to be 13 floors when counting those red windowed floors at the top, but now there are 14 floors ! (14th rising) Finally some progress...

Just noticed that one of the rooms is labelled "wine cellar". How one could have a wine cellar on the 95th floor baffles me, but a jolly fun idea nevertheless.

Encase a room in concrete, install a cooling system, and there you have it.

At 95 stories above the ground, I'd hardly call it a "cellar"...

Indeed. It's pretty much the new generation of skyscrapers.

What are the diameters of those windows ? They are huge ! (comparing them to the workers in the hanging elevator)
