The core grows... cranes are reached by the core, core needs to grow more so cranes are lifted... that's a crane jump.

They know it because the core is too close to the crane cabins.

You can see the next attachments points for the crane on the core emerging from under the slipforms.

It's probably taken from Shimao Plaza (Puxi's only supertall). It's a luxury hotel.

Is the core itself shaped differently for the truss levels? Or is it just the floors?
