Finally nice to see this rising.

There was a housing expo over Golden Week and Greenland had a booth there complete with a over-size replica of this tower. A pity that the tower isn't in the suburbs away from everything, can't see it rise very easily.

As an aside, I know most of the big towers in China are located in the (real) CBD downtown. How many others towers are located in non-central locations? The only one that comes to mind is the Williams Tower in Houston at 275m. Does anyone know of anything taller?

What exactly is the red structure ?

Is it part of the slip form to build the core ?

Yes, The red structure is the formwork of the core. Interesting here is the white part, perhaps part of other structure, as this on the pic. I see for first time, something like that.

Actually I have been to that building you just mentioned in Houston and it is really good looking but I found it strange that it was the only tall building in the Galleria area of Houston. That's a good point you brought up and I think LA has one or two tall buildings outside the CBD

This tower's enhanced "star of lakshmi"-shaped plan is an interesting idea. Though the implementation is suitable only for small scale objects (trophies, vases, handles etc.), because it has no sheer vertical surfaces. At the very least, it's much more practical if some parts of the curtain wall is slanted outwards. The slanted curtain walls of One WTC becomes too dirty at the end of the cleaning cycle. Another reason is because whatever is leaning towards the core - is taking the valuable floor space from the interiors.

I'm dying to see what this device is on the top. New kind of concrete pump perhaps.

Such a heavy base for concrete pumps? I doubt it. It looks like the structure in oscillation's post #214 so perhaps it is a base for construction cranes.
