Jeez, I remember a time when this thing seemed as if it would never take off. Now it's rising like a rocket (well in a way )

The core seems so dense like an oil rig of some sorts

That moment when you get used to see this steel core, and then it becomes concrete.

hate to sound stupid here, but what goes between the square core, and circle hole? Steel braces? concrete? Or just is it left open until they reach ground level, then it will be squared off?

These circles will be destroyed. When the outer columns start to rise they'll build square floors.

I'm not sure if they even going to build square floors for the tower below gorund ZZ-II. they will pour concrete floor slabs for every underground level but what many forget is that this all site is empty below the concrete platform (both holes we see shares the same huge free space). So I guess there won't be square floors below the street level but large levels shared both by the tower and the mall and occupying pretty much whole of the site.

Hmm. Now this time it's not an illusion They added some steel. I wonder what they will do next. If they add steel directly next to the cranes they (cranes) won't be even able to rotate around. So either we are close to the crane jump or they will just add steel in places where they won't collide with cranes.

Looks like the nets above the columns have been removed, too.

Is the part of the formwork protruded inward is for the further cranes?
I guess there's also such a spot on the another side.
