Btw, just a quick thought, does anyone have the core to usable area ratios for the tower, zone by zone? It looks like that the ratio is going to come down significantly in the upper half of the building.

The proportions are going to look funny under construction. It's funny how the tower looks with only the lower cladding done. There was a time when very poofy breeches where popular in Europe too

The cladding could be sleeker, and not have so much discontinuity in the glass, but on the whole it is a clever aesthetic design methinks.

The core in this building is going to account for a reasonable amount of usable space... I don't know why everyone thinks the core is just a concrete hunk used for utilities. The core tapers down in size as the tower rises. Think of the core as the form that Sears tower takes.

True, most of it will obviously be used for elevators, but I thought there is also some office room inside.
I'll have to check the drawings.

Normally the only office space left free by the core is the one along the core's perimeter, due to core's size reduction while it rises.
Normally internal core space left free by the elevators (and this doesn't happen for ST only) is used for restrooms, closets and depositories.
Core's size reduction in ST begins from level 52.

In general. I have been in several skyscrapers where kitchens, meeting rooms, and other spaces have been located within the core of the building.

How can you tell? Or did you see their construction.

I used to work in Jin Mao. The office was like a Donught, open space around the inner core. However the core housed the Elevators, kitchens, and the bathrooms. It was quite spacious, espeically since it was on the 7th floor. I think this one and SWFC are similar. Even the Jin Mao lobby looks eerily column free.

Structural floor plans and just being in the building. The John Hancock tower in Boston is a good example of this. The core houses kitchens, bathrooms, and depending on the floor, meeting rooms, as well as the elevator bank. It's not all dead/unusable floor space. The Prudential here in Boston has a similar layout.

So what is going to be inside? between the glass cladding and the actual building? Or just a hallway or what? I bet it will look awesome if you look up.

Fantastic. That means the crane machinists are sitting at 490m now.

To be honest, Shanghai's scrapers may be tacky, some of them quite ugly. But similar and dull? You must be crazy.

That's just your opinion, but even if it was correct these three more than make up for that. The smallest of them blows anything in the UK out of the water, imagine the Jin Mao next to the shard, it would make it look like a wigwam.
