It's amazing how rapidly the tower is growing.

Will the 3 smaller cores be on the main core? Otherwise, it seems the tower cant handle the mass of the cores.

yes, the west towers atrium will be about 110m high. 308-420m.
thus roof of west tower is as high as tip of jin maos spire.
Jin maso atrium ranges from 260m-340m. or about 80m high.
Also not to forget ICC towers top 15 floors are hollow atrium frame. starts at approx 420m-480m. (60m) ,this still hasnt started. due to floor plates catching up.
so yes, West tower will have tallest internal atrium atop a skyscraper.

what green version? this tower always planned blue cladding.

Green cladding on this tower would be quite nice though blue cladding's too common.

BTW does this method of ribbing structure make to structure lighter or heavier compared to more common method?

Well, in the testing phase there were three types of cladding, one was dark blue, one light blue and one green. I liked the green the best. Looks like they have chosen the dark blue version...



And I said the cladding started, I know it has started long ago, but it was going slowly, looks like it is gaining some speed.

light blue would be showing the inside and the cross bracing tubes too much, this colour is perfect.

I think makes it lighter. Empty pipes of iron are used instead of heavy concrete.

It's nice that you can still see the intricate diagonal braces behind the glass. I think that adds positively to the tower's appearance.
