I'm trying to figure out what's going on in those last photos, at night - removal of a crane? Reconfiguration of the form work?

This thing is literally a beast in terms of construction... Removing the formwork at the top of the core to make it smaller huh... So it begins. It's gonna get a lot more interesting now

This tower has quite an unusual structure. Is there a heightened seismic activity?

I don't think wuhan suffers from earthquakes myb it just seems unusual because right now they are reconfiguring the formwork to make the core skinnier... Dunno if that helps explain anything. If you look at the first few pages there should be diagrams that show what I'm tlkn about

well, it certainly isn't in a region categorized with a seismic activity as high as Beijing, Tianjin or Xi'an on this map: http://www.preventionweb.net/files/3760_chi.pdf
on the other hand there are different pictures showing the measured seismic activities over time and such one's where Beijing and Tianjin are less severe and Taipei is in the highest activity Zone, but those may be less precise maps...
