Yes. Some aspects of its design are still being kept secret. It's able to withstand impacts from double-decker jets, and it's not like that's an issue that needs to be adressed because it's likely that no one will hijack a jet again in America. Walls in the tower around important places are over a meter thick. This building will still be stanting 300 years from now.

Can you picture this place in 2009?

There will be 4 supertalls, plus about 4 other skyscrapers, all rising right next to each other!

0.0833 years with current speed. They're installing the rebar and the formwork for the walls of the core. With the current speed in building and installing formwork I expect concrete being poured before the end of this month. They're also preparing the ground for the floorslab of B4 outside the core. Inside the core B4 has already been poured
