there will be a space truss in the first floor of the cantilever part , after finish that truss it will be easy to construct the rest of the building since it will act like a new platform

construct that truss will be the biggest challenging for construction , I think the only way to do it is to connect it member by member with the connections starting from constructed part to the cantilever edge .

WOW! Thats really a big challenge! It must be a new feat of engineering if that accomplished. I tried to research or explore the nearest structure similar to this and the only structures I can find is St. Louis Arch Gateway here in United States and the other one is France's La Defense Grand Arch. So this will be a new accomplishment once it's completed.
