this tower looks pretty modern and futuristic, but too much angular.

Ok so it will be your typical mezz floor, steel deck, with concrete topping. They prob could mix the conrete on the lower floors, but it all depends on how big the floor space is.

the area marked is the Dubai Mall (largest mall in the world) and the Business Hub with some Highrises.

however there is a total of about 70 highrises in burj dubai complex (1km x 1km)

edit: having a closer look actually Business Hub is not part of this area you marked, it is above Burj Dubai.
in fact, this is Dubai Mall and old town island.
