It also looks like the concrete of sone of the supercolumns rises above ground level (or at least the formwork).

I'm reading some bad news on this one.

Have they really been using bad concrete so far and stopped the construction?

No, they tested samples and found no problems. Construction is back on track.

Look at the size of this thing. The structural supports in the base and lower 10 floors are massive.
