Why is that steel plate hanging on the crane purposely enlarged, is it for any special use?

And the second picture, it is forming green scaffoldings on the ground floor, what is it for?

Oh I thought that jamyan just want to provide us a better view...
The green scaffoldings on the ground floor is a corridor bulit for safety concern? Just a guess.
And I don't know what these orange steel beams for.

The scaffolding is looking like a circle around the core, and then a bridge to the edge of the hole. I thought it would mean something.

The core is getting quite high now with those new steels - it must be about 50m?

I wonder until what height they will remove the scaffoldings at the bottom of the core to show us some concrete.

Wow, so much steel in the middle. No wonder it can be built so tall.

This building is going to be huge. I'm just a little doubtful about the surrounding cluster though ... I've got this feeling that the three towers are too close to each other. it's just a feeling :-)
