The core will reach 48 floors and the remaining part of the tower will reach 36th by the end of this year.

The articulated arms can't reach very high, they pump the concrete to the top through a tube.

Nine elevators? I wonder what will be in the cavity in the very middle of the core. How much higher before the core changes or thins out a little?

Nine cavities, and of course more than nine elevators.


The core will begin to reduce to a 5 cavities, cross shaped one from 51th floor.

To me this seems to have slowed down in the last month or so. How many floors have they added to the core, almost none it seems.

Yeah the core slowed down because they worked on the skeleton. Look at the picture on the last page showing it month by month, the core kind of stopped.

And I see, looks like 44 elevators.

No, it did not stop. If you look at the exposed floors above the yellow
clamp for the cranes, there are 4 floors now. Just 2 weeks ago, there were
2.

Looks like they need to jump the cranes before they can go any higher.

This means we should still see the triangular outline throughout construction unless they work on the exoskeleton very late in the game. I was also under the impression that the first couple of floors up to the top of the podium would extend out to the edge.

Makes a little more sense now as per the shape. I believe the side facing us there is the podium?
