That cladding looks original unlike any other buildings cladding I think it'll look great once completed its not even half way up and it's already towering over everything else

Not really. In that plan it looks like the core takes up about 30-35% of the floor area. That includes the three core extensions and the pillars on the outer walls. (A triangle is a deceptive shape.)

This is better than Jeddah tower though, because that doesn't even go around the edges of the core wings. I think most people were pretty surprised about that one...
