I don't remember seeing supercolumns in all supertall towers. What's the purpose of them, extra structural integrity for security or something else?

They make the structure alot more safe and stronger. There're lots of new towers which have Supercolumns.
SWFC and Taipe 101 have them too for example

I can hardly remember an U/C tower, amongst these actually U/C and 4-5-600 m tall, that's not featuring supercolumns.
Beyond SWFC and Taipei 101 recalled by ZZ-II (which on the other hand are not U/C), I can remember:
- Shanghai Tower (8 supercolumns)
- Ping'an Finance Center (8)
- Goldin Finance 117 (4)
- Seoul Lotte Tower (8)
- Busan Lotte Tower (3)
- The Chow Tai Fook Guangzhou (8)

........ And I surely forgot someone else

The Shard, for instance, has no supercolumns, and I guess this's why it's 310 m tall only.

yes, smaller supertalls normally don't have super columns.

I suppose I just haven't been paying attention.

Good news: It's NOT really On-Hold its just a waiting game now. Then once permission is given it will start right away.

If they are just waiting for permission to build it we don't have to worry about this, it's just a momentary pause
