No, the CTF in guangzhou is taller ( 530m ). And you probably mean Shanghai world financial center.

Further up, the sides of the supercolumns are indeed clad white, so Dubai_Skyscraper is likely wrong thinking the weird black grid on the sides further down is the final product and will not be covered.

I'm still hoping to be proven wrong, but that has not happened yet We were well aware that the grid thing, if final, would only reach to a certain height as this rendering suggests:

Why has the core changed to octagonal?

I can't tell; it's in the first post of the thread and has been posted more than once I think.
However the renders on the KPF website show the exact same thing:
