Looking in through the glass, the cylindrical core of the tower, where people will actually be working, looks actually very thin in relation to the silhouette of the outer shell.
But isn't it cool how people aren't building according to purely pragmatic criteria!?

Appears that they are nearing the top of the concrete core.

So, it was still rising faster and that's what is was about.

That picture shows only the core ore a whole level? Excluding the espace for the elevators, it seems to be too narrow for offices. I believe the picture belongs to the core without the corresponding floor.

Not the core, the whole building needs approximately 100 meters, the core only needs some ~30-35 meters to top out according to the latest diagram.
