Maybe the bracing is not for the skybridge at all, but instead is temporary bracing to be built to the top of the hole to support the upper floors (100, 101) while they are constructed. Once those upper levels at the top of the hole are completed, they would then remove this temporary bracing.

The way those cranes are precariously connected to the side of the building would make me afraid that they would somehow slip off. Very brave workers that can climb up there and do their jobs right.

Temporary bracing one level higher:



Working fast

Thus... the skybridge is not under construction yet... just bracing to secure construction of the lateral columns. And help building the top part I presume
