I think we are all getting confused here. Maybe Giovani has to clarify to what tower did he refer to as "almost 200 m".

Cul, the formwork is on the 35th floor, only that for the left hand section is lagging behind.

those bits on the side still seem like they're a waste of concrete ;-)
... especially if they're not putting any offices, lifts, stairs in this section - why not fill this bit in and just have each floorplate decrease as the height increases? Makes no sense? How cheap is concrete over there?

Also are they expecting 300mph cross-winds or something- I can't think of any other reason for this "over-bracing"?
Other than that I like the design and the things like the louvre's over the windows (though not built) are a good idea given the desert sun.
The render with the lake at the bottom is beautiful though

^im pretty sure the side columns have all services in them? Foster does this to most of his projects. He leaves the floor open and services away in seperate structure.
the decrease in floor plate is because the first 25 floors or so are OFFICE FLOORS while upper levels are RESIDENTIAL! they have to be thinner to allow natural light in.
cheers
