Do we see underground levels at the bottom or lower floors?

i think the floorplates visible are actually underground, u can clearly see what will be the lobby above it, before the regular floors start.

Why is there an absence of floor plates in the middle section? Is that some sort of elevated area or atrium?
Might have to do with that there will be a lot of parkingfloors, or so ive read.

Massive structure.
Does anyone has some floor plans.
As far as I can conclude are all the lifts and staircases in the left and right part of the building.
Those two parts does have a kind of core function.
Will there be any cladding on the massive concrete stucture of those "cores". If yes, what kind of material will be used.

This structure is so massive that it seems to too have several independent cores and three floor plates per floor!
