I know that there's a large underground station in the middle with an impressive glass entrance at ground level, however I don't know what else is there as there were construction site hoardings everywhere when I went last summer.

And don't forget columns are growing altogether...

So it will be slowing down when reaching the core height - 2 or 3.
