Is the south core rising first because it was the south tower that fell first?

No, the south core is just easier to build.

Basincreek - thanks for the great picture. This is a pivotal moment. I just realized that ever picture I've seen up until now has been looking down. This the first time we are looking up. I guess that is what skyscrapers are about

Why two cores?

While I see the south core rinsing, one question comes to me: Why there are two cores? All the other surpertall towers around the world have only one core (at least the boxy ones). And, it doesn't make sense since the usable space is considerably reduced.

There may be a better answer to that but for one I think it’s for safety reasons.

Yup that's correct but I'm doubting if two cores really help.
Why not one big core?

It's actually one core that is being built in two parts, a southern part and a northern part.
