This will be an epic tower. I love the cladding, curves and the three-winged shape.

I assume it will be a three-winged core similar to Burj Khalifa's.

at this height?? i thought this winged cores only are used in buildings like burj khalifa (700-800+) why in this one??
where you get this informations?
Do you know how big is the foundation hole or how thick will be the concrete plate? Whats about the size of the core and the tower base?
the piles have a diameter of ~1m (looks so)

if you exclude the spire of Burj Khalifa both towers are arround the same height, so i don't see a problem here.

Side tower, and the final design and height are still not determined. Probably not starting in the next 2 years.
