It doesn't look like there will be much space, but there is a lot more space than you would expect.
Very rough drawing assuming the core takes up the middle half:

If you look at the plan view carefully, you will see that the core only takes up 29% of the space! (2/7 to be exact)
Even if you take into account the mega-columns, there is a still more than 50% usable floor space!

After some basic measurements in GIMP, I calculated that the first floor plan has about 68% usage (32% core and columns), and the second one has 62% usage (38% core and columns)

By this drawing there appears to be 2.5 times the space outside the core than in.

Yeah, I don't understand people's infatuation with high floor counts. A lower floor count in relation to a building's height is actually a good thing. Lower the number of floors and you'll essentially be raising the ceiling height per floor. So if you want your 8 foot ceilings, you can keep them. I'll be somewhere else enjoying my 15 foot ones.

All photos taken by me this morning. You can clearly see that the visibility isn't that good these days because of the outer downward air stream caused by tropical storm Trami. Plus, the second crane jumped as well!

Winters are mild and relatively dry in Shenzhen. Now we are in the middle of the rain season, when it is warm and humid.

whole of china is in on the north hemisphere, which means that winter is in and around january, yet shenzhen is on the southern tip of china, which makes this one of the warmest cities and therefor the winter is not really cold and there is no snow. pretty much subtropical climate.

From the tropic of Cancer to the tropic of Capricorn there no such thing as winter. Shenzhen in between that so the only season they have are wet and dry seasons.

In those pictures DoubleU posted, the tower seems almost deserted at first glance. Then you spot something looking like a grain of orange dust on your screen, and realize how small the workers are compared to the skyscraper. They are visible in most pictures, if you squint hard enough. If you're bored one day, drop by this thread and play "Spot the workers". Can't see any in the last picture posted, though.
