the core or floorplates are poured as one entity which most of time happens to be a floor. Grocon in Australia have recently built a 2x 70st/90st bldgs with double floor core pours.As long as next floor is identical the pour consists of 2 whole floors not just 1.make sense?

The huge dome at the top could use better designing, but overall, IMO a cool addition for Dubai.

I think the two big towers in this image are to big. They are around 500 if you take the Emirates Marina Serviced Apartments & Spa tower.
