2nd photo above shows the steel ribbing installed takes up 5 floors. This kind of construction is much faster than normal concrete pouring floor by floor right?

core has lev61 in clear and 3 more in core, thus lev64= 290m.
floors are up to lev47.
5 more rises to lev69/308m. then its goes hollow
amazing speed.

Nice photo.
I wonder when will they start cladding. (i know that testing has started) I think the facade will be transparent. Otherwise the ribbing won't be seen.

cladding has started already, but only at the bottom...so you can't see it until now

It's about 2 1/2 years after official groundbreaking, but only about 1 year after West Tower has grown above ground. So if the core is raised up a few more floors soon, this would be among the quickest u/c-supertalls ever (maybe only ESB was even faster).

On the other hand, the core has reached the top of the office levels according to Culwullas diagram, and the sloping hotel part will begin. Could the growth slow down now due to transition floors?

If I get it right, there won't be a central core from 308m on anymore. What will be the supporting elements around the atrium at the top then - maybe the part that carries the helipad? And will the elevators continue, or will hotel guests and observation deck visitors have to change them?
