I like this tower a lot to, I think it has a lot of potential. Smith and Gill always do an amazing and outstanding, job. They must be busy working on Kingdom Tower, Wuhan Greenland, Nordstrom and Burj 2020

The curved triangular floorplates remind me of World One in Mumbai.

Based on that photo of the test cladding, there seems to be shockingly little floor space between the core and the cladding...

No less than the floorplates in the Kingdom Center. It seems like a number of the 3 - wing buildings have small floorplates.

It is more of an optical illusion. According to the floorplans (Lvl 28) on the previous page the core + supercolumns take pretty much 33% of the entire floor space, while the usable area is 67%. I believe the ratio on Ping'an was 25 - 75.

cant believe i missed these new updates, this thing is rising pretty quick. I see the green netting all around the steel in the recent ones, hopefully that steel rises a little faster but it probably takes some time to install the belt truss and this is only gonna get wider as it rises which is one of my fav. things about this building
