It's almost as if building towers is a slow process

I don't agree based on past experience. Ping An was slower than this tower at the beginning. For a long time there was just a hole on the site of Ping An tower. After then it shoot up 300m in 1 year.

After it goes past ground level, this building should also rise at incredible speed

From the point they install the climbing formwork at the core it'll speed up alot. Though we're still several months away from that.
