It strikes me that in various renders and pictures the height vs base ratio is 10:1, with a reported base width of 76 meters (which seems to be correct judging from it's current estimated height compared to it's width) that would be a height of 760 meters...

Are those renders to fool us about the actual final height? Or is the base (as we see it build now, not the wider base that will be added later) actually 100 meters wide and are we now already at 70 meters high?

the base is different from different perspectives though, because of it's shape

The jump-form rig on the main core has not jumped in a while.

This is still how it stands:

Many thanks for the photograph updates everybody!
Though its great to see a lot of crane activity - maybe they have to jump TC2 (Tower Crane 2) before they are able to raise the jump-form to work on the next level.

Maybe they want the floor slabs to catch up a little?

I don't think that. It might be the underground parking lots.

It's the tower's podium, also containing the underground parking among other things. I've posted drawings in the past, including that part as well.

The schematic can simply be found on Wikipedia:
