Isn't this going to end like Ping An in Shenzhen when height reduction occurred at the very end for unclear (political?) reasons?

It's becoming a majestic landmark as it takes shape. Looking even better than I had expected.

Yes. For the last four floors. Not sure, but after floor 91, the core again will change its form. This time all three "wings" must be cut for the final 34 floors.

I guess the core slipform will need to be modified soon as the size of the core is reduced,will probably slow the speed of the core construction for a period of time

Who cares, this thing is still racing up!
And some people thought Kingdom Tower had a chance to beat this!
I wonder if this could top out before the end of the year, becoming the second tallest building/structure in the world.

Nope.
Unless WWIII happen and we all die we'll build more and more bigger project than this in the future.

But still by our time it's an incredible project.

I think he may be referring to one of the largest things humans have ever built up to this point.
