10% of the total height, or 10% of the total process completed?

The construction of this building is interesting- does it even have a core? It looks like most of the building's structure is based around the perimeter columns.

That oval shape in the center is a core I guess?

Hmm, maybe, but then why are all the forms on the perimeter columns instead of the core? Either way, a very interesting construction method.

It is probably a bit like the Burj Khalifa, which didn't really have a proper core like Ping An/ST, CTF etc. does, rather the whole structure (except the top) is concrete, set in place using forms.

This is a relatively new construction method. This is earthquake proof, and this exo skeleton is actually much stronger then your typical steel beam construction

Dubai is the showcase of supertalls and this only has to beautify it further.
