I like the old renderings better. But these "renderings" are basically sketches so I shouldn't be complaining.

Yes, the concrete core is now T/O

But that core comes quite close from the 632m height anyway

Good. I can't stand seeing this bare skeleton for another year. I really want to see the glass rise rapidly to the top.

Huh? How are they not continuing it? You can't just have a building like that!

Unless you meant for now, which I'm assuming. If that's true, then when will they continue it? Like I said, you can't just have a building like that!
