Infinity's construction methods might be smilar to Chicago Spire. This can give us an idea how CS would like if it was U/C.

No, it's not. CS was supposed to be a steel structure, while this is a reinforced concrete one.

It appears the concrete pumps are more like a tower crane on this building.
This is the first time I've noticed this set up. Is this common or a new building method?

It's a normal set up, with a concrete pump AND a towercrane located inside the core. They will both rise up with the tower, so nothing special, just like other towers.

Thnx for the pics, Imre!
Nice to see some progress. One floor in 17 days at the core. I think the main construction is at the basement levels...
Over Ground with the floors of the podium till the end of the year?

On Post #767 from Imre you see 6 floors of the core over ground. On Imres pic update today you can see 7 floors over ground => One floor in 17 days!

They should be working on the floors of the basement indeed. The core can wait.
