Can someone explain why has the form risen so much without seeing any new steel column on top of the core?

Thanks,

They have brought the form u to get ready for another core pour, so new steel should be in there soon. After that they will pour the core and continue. The reason why the steel isn't in yet is because the cranes had to jump.

It might be slightly off topic, but can I ask why this thread isn't as populated as, say the 1WTC thread or something?

I mean this thing is one of the tallest buildings under construction and the tallest that's above ground. It's set to break plenty of records and we could discuss the design for days.

Can someone tell me why the Shanghai Tower thread is sometimes ridiculously slow? Is it due to the lack of updates or something?
