It looks like the steel work will stay ahead of the concrete core as the structure rises. This was the case in several other office buildings in New York, like 1WTC and Bank of America Tower.

This tower has a concrete core?

They are still in the "inverted setback" part of the building with the big unsupported glass walls and such ... I bet the steel work needs to be done on this part before the concrete, but after this complex base work is finished it will rise in a more "traditional" manner.

The south-western corner is now beginning to rise after a similar rise on the north-western corner. Taken this afternoon (and apologise in advance for the shadowing; hard to avoid the sun at 12pm on an iPhone):
