To me it looks like 2 red cranes either side of the core and the other one possibly being an external crane or one based more for one of the 'legs'

I agree, those are obviously different than favcos used at pingan, but this below is also favco. In this case m2480D.

Oh of course it's being built in Jeddah, almost all high rises in Saudi Arabia are in Jeddah, Riyadh needs more Skyscrapers cause the kingdom tower looks awkward being in the suburbs

Anyways the quality will probably be good, Cause people from the gulf take more time building sturdy towers, while the Chinese think Speed is more important than Safety.

Strange to think that 1WTC's height from base to spire is just over half this building's height.

What is the highest occupied floor of this building? Isn't there significant unoccupied space in the top?

650 isn't that high, so it looks like it will have 357m of vanity height.

Still the highest floors on earth. And floors at over 600m above ground are very high to me. I don't care about the unused space in the spire since it's not a spire like 1WTC for example.
