I'm surprised too, normally they've already started pouring the concrete to encase the core before it's above street level.

yes and shanghai tower will look more massive overall, since it tops with a big crown and not a spire, yet i like both buildings about equally, so i am happy for both buildings getting the title of china's tallest for a bit

(well unless sky city would become reality, which i am reasonably sceptical about)
