i'm not sure what he means. But in this build it is not 'just' using concrete. This building must be on the edge of modern day concrete engineering. The amounts of rebar and steel are enormous. And i think the conrecte will have a very high strenght.

Do you mean so many of these plentyful 500+m buildings everywhere?

I've whatched the Pentominium construction site quite a bit. And, compared to other buildings, it almost appears like the concrete is used to insulate the steel rebar. I'm exagerating, but the amount of steel is stupendous.

Other than concrete and steel, what should they be using to build this tall? Carbon fiber would be cool, but too expensive and not fire proof...

Yeah, the core has gained even two floors. And it's great that the podiums levels are left behind and the regular floor slabs have begun... if one can call walls like the slanted to the left "regular" .

That's the reinforcement at the base and lower floors of the building. Higher floors pillars will have a more conventional rebar incorporated into them.

I never really noticed how oblong shaped the core was. Very interesting.

This is mix use right. Doesn't that have something, to do with amount of steel vs concrete they use. If this was a office tower, I'd wonder why they aren't using more steel.
