What an amazing structure. I wonder how the support columns run through the building. I'd hate to be the engineer who had to design this thing lol

There are none, that's the beauty of this design. The core is the backbone or spine and what you see on the outside is the only other structural part.

From latest set of pics on www.skyscraperlist.com.

So the core ends at level 75... equals 75 floors?

The L-XY markings on the core do take into consideration the podium levels. I checked early construction fotos and it was P1 - P5, and then L-6 all the way up to L75.
