with all the diggers on site it shouldn't take too long to excavate the complete hole . but until this will rise out of the hole it will take until next year i guess.

I don't know but I guess it may be part of the supporting ring or some kind of platform for crane. What else they could pour at this point?

I'm guessing it is a ramp that will curl around the interior of the ring and extend down to the last ring.
How many basement floors will this have? Usually it is somewhere between 3-5.

They will be similar. Shanghai tower has similar height and width so there really is no reason for these holes to be any different. Besides it's clear from the pics they are pretty much the same in size.

Both towers will be similar in size, and the construction method probably too. So the holes will be also similar i guess

How many levels of underground parking will there be for this building? They are going to need a lot of parking for people working there and visiting the building for business purposes.

Hopefully there is or will be a subway stop near the tower so so many people won't have to drive there.
