OK so that spot is a worker.

Eventually, that thing might be big after all

the center part rising is the central core, or the main core and even that is broken into 3 sections. Then there are the wing cores, which are the walls we see making up the wings. The entire structure that we see rising I believe is a core, but the actual building wont be much bigger than what we currently are seeing. Everybody has been a little right on this one..

Now at the base, thats a different story, as they are going to have a monstrous podium for this sucker. The nose cones still have to rise up quite a bit, and that will give a little more size to the wings.

The core walls (being wing cores) are actually part of the floorplans and the way its laid out. Some units are most likely going to be very soundproof, given that its most likely these walls will also be separating them. All they are doing is bringing up the floorplates now, and the floorplates I still believe are what is going to give the building most of the shapes that we see in the renderings (such as the circular lips along the facade).

I spotted the worker, (actually there are two, one is on the central core) while checking the original sized image for floor numbers.

Pictures taken from far away.
