Is that actually the core of this tower?

Beacuse if it is, God, it's small. Too small. I wonder how big it is compared with the core of other buildings? Ping An, Goldin, Shanghai Tower or even Burj Khalifa?

I love the tower, but I hope, that Saudi-Arabia will be more tourism-friendly and more liberal in future.
