Yes, they work pretty fast imo. This morning there were waiting two trucks again in front of the gate loaded with new steel parts for the core. Also one of the mega coulmns on the north side had risen to the same level as the ones in the south and it's already connected to the concrete core. Walking every morning a detour to pass by the site. It looks massive.

This is undergoing some acceleration. Nice to see more visible progress.
I guess they will make some concrete pouring cages around the super columns soon.

God was busy making some new planets, but stopped when somebody cornered the market on iron.

They were preparing the second boom incl the lower braces for the latest crane (west side) the whole morning and connect it now to the core. Guess after that they finally assemble the rest of the crane within the next few days.

As posted this morning that crane #4 is on the rise it reached already the same height as #3! Nevertheless some parts of the operating top are still missing.

Yes, I agree. They were already preparing the second boom for crane #2 (east side). I guess that they will be done with it till noon-time.

Can the steel in the core be considered Super beams are they just steel plating?

They are just steel elements (substitute to the ordinary rebar chages) in order to achieve the necessary core concrete strength. Within the core they might just have shorter beams along the elevator shaft and lintel beams.
I believe that there won't be any super beams as for MEP and office height reasons the clear ceiling height need to be achieved to meet certain requirements and the beams are simply transfering the loading into the core wall and the mega columns/bracings.
