To keep its top heavy shape stable?

i'd disagree
firstly, the shape of this building isn't such an architectural problem to have so massive core
and secondly, 25 churchhill place has almoust the same core in meaning of size, but it's almoust a regulary-shaped box

it's rather a new tendency. maybe they gonna put all common services like elevators, WC, technical rooms etc in one place(the core) ?

The reason for the core being so huge will be partly due to its shape, however a lot of London has very soft, clayish land, this is the reason that almost all tall buildings have cores in London

it is just a big core, the tower would be much bigger than that.

i hope this image will give you an idea of how it would look when it's completed
