How high will the concrete core go on this build-or are they using steel?

With a start early 2012 and no big delays it should be possible to complete the tower in 2017.

And then my future job of becoming an architect of the world's tallest building would be much harder.
How deep will the piles go?

^Hi Fury. In case you were wondering, I wasn't bashing the tower. It's design is pretty nice in my opinion, but it isn't anything amazing and new. The main idea behind the tower is simply it's massive height. Cheers.
