Are the thinner structure just the core or are the lower floors a podium?

You can spot the central core on the center-left part of the picture:

that looks like a big mistake in the construction . it looks there's no conrete only damaged steel. don't forget that is the core which has to give the stability to the tower

Yea, I spotted it too...

For a tower of its stature and the engineering discipline needed to built a tower of its proportions, that pic has made me very worried...

It appears the formwork has been raised without addressing this. If this is so, can you imagine what other errors could already have been made which will compound the situation in the near future?

I am no structural engineer, but shouldnt that rebar be vertical rather than layered diagonally?

So now we have all of the armchair engineers worrying about an apparently massive problem that the experts haven't seen at all. Now I'm no architect or builder or engineer but isn't it fairly possible that they'll be putting horizontal rebar through there and pouring a floor slab and filling it in with concrete at that time especially since all of the columns appear to have that gap at the same level? The floor slabs have to connect to the core somehow, they can't just butt up against it. I'll tell you what is NOT likely, and that's that they "messed up" and "haven't noticed".

Yes Hollie, I am hoping someone with expertise will clear this up. Im worried but I know better than to jump to conclusions. The fact is that is not the only thing that looks 'odd'. The state of the concrete itself looks very disorderly and I would love to hear from someone who knows if this is all normal or if it is shoddy.
