This was discussed before.

The outer section of the wings, regardless of the setback, will be constructed diferently from the solid curtain wall core. If you see, what you call as corners, are with column.

When there is a setback on the wing, there will be a setback on the wing's core as well, allowing that the outer section to be build with column, instead of a solid wall, offering un-obstracted views all around.

Look at the render the one at the back in that pic has the setback first the tower seems fine and if anything tall? Thats why we were asking when will the set back occur and it's a long time.

But how do they handle all the infrastructure for all these simultaneous ongoing constructions ?

Roads, to bring cement.
Elecrticity, to power tools.
Water.
Steel for reinforcement.
...

seeing all these building growing at the same time is truly amazing !

Last night I asked you twice to specify what you mean by "fall". In this world that has a number of different meanings and I only want to know which one you're talking about so that we may have a proper discussions. Instead you said construction has a rectum which obviously doesn't since construction is not a living creature!

Nice updates btw smussuw. You can also see where the podium's height aswell (ie, where the shape of the nose sections change slightly)

SMUSSUW,

Great updates, if look at the picture that show the set back, you can see that the top of the outer wall gets thicker, and holds the rebar for the nose columns to start on top of it now. Also if look you can see that there is some sort of projection coming out of the 16th floor doors in the outer wall of the wings, this is on all three sides, but I can't tell what it is.

I noticed the same thing. But I am assuming that is where the two outer-most columns will rest. Assuming that they continue with the four columns in the nose section, the other two (inner) columns will be resting on the middle of a floor plate. That plate will need to be pretty beefy to support the loads coming from the columns. Hopefully we'll get some good pictures when they get to that point in construction. Should be interesting to see what they do.

btw - I'm a relative newbie to the forums, but the updates are excellent and I appreciate the work of the contributors. and the occasional troll is good for a laugh...
