It is reiforced concrete..You just don't see it because steel goes first..In the building are form works for concrete..The core is concrete, floors are concrete...Everything is concrete...With hell of a steel inside...

It's going to be safest than Burj and Shanghai..

can anyone create a rendering of that?
Something like this?

I was watching the 3rd cam on the Earthcam page and it looked like some equipment is moving around. I'm sure they are working on things below grade, but I don't think they'll be doing any concrete pouring on any exposed surfaces, or any open welding until the rain lets up.

Work does not stop because of winter. Last winter there were no weather related work stops, though several massive snowstorms choked the region putting the brakes on people getting to the worksite. Lot of those workers take the subway, so it wasn't 100% work stop.

They just slope the walls inward, or put a very large beam under the new wall alignment. ( could be a steel beam, or a concrete beam.) The corner clipping doesn't begin until the 68th floor or so.

Little factoid, the largest concrete beam in the building is 8' 4" by 17' 6".
