This has probably already been answered, but once the concrete core tops out, will the steel section of the core continue to rise or only once the floor steel catches up?

Well, I've heard the core is totally independent in that aspect, so it could very well continue to rise.

Does anyone know the name of the song that plays in that video? I tried looking through the description and all the comments, searched for the lyrics, even used Shazam on my phone to try and identify it, but couldn't find anything.

Congrats to London on this beautiful building!... Love the glass, the shape.... everything! In my opinion, this will be one of the most spectacular skyscrapers in the world when completed.

In some ways it resembles a little brother to Freedom Tower/WTC1.

London skyline is getting bigger and denser now i really can't wait to see all the future projects and skyscrapers, and i think that Pinnacle and Cheese Grater will make London skyline even more impressive.

London is extremely dense. Unless you're talking about skyscraper density.
