i think the best photo we'll get out of this is at night when finished. I have very strong feeling that this tower will host the new year's party with all the fire works and lightings and etc... will be so cool.

Looks like the red formwork on the top of the core has jumped, now that those red beams on top of the core are hidden, but BTW were they for concrete reinforcement or are they just raw steel structure on top of the core?

Per news, GZ TV tower has been topped out. I guess it's talking about the concrete construction.
