I like watching this tower rise, unlike most other towers where it rises floor by floor, this one's external ribbing installed at once takes up 4-5 floors or however many numbers of floors and progresses in batch.

It's hard to believe the "European architectrures" are newly built ones from this pic. It's like they've been built for 100 years.

I just want to say I never see as large core of the building as this one. the area of the core from bird's eye view must be very big.

In general compared to other cores in skyscraper this has one of the largest core. Worst of all, 300 north lasalle in Chitown has a tiny core 4 of those cores can fit in core of this tower.

Huge buildings need huge core... I don't think this one is extra large, it is comparable to ICC in Hong Kong for example...
