The best close-ups in a while! Looks like another floor in the core, around 430m than?

I know they're all taken on same day, but something tells me they're not. Like first photo show the external ribbing widening at the top but 2nd, 3rd and 4th photo looks like old photos.

Anyway... Considering how much faster the core is rising compared to the outside I think we can safely dismiss those weirdos who don't consider this a freestanding structure because of the outside steel webbing.
