Like any other twister. The successive floorplates are just slightly offset to each other then clad. It's no amazing mystery nowadays.

Thanks for posting the renders NEWUSER.

Apparently the first sections of the external diagrid have been installed on site. Any locals got any shots of this? It would really help to start to see the final shape of the tower.
