Really nice, helps put it into perspective.

Also, I didn't know there was a camera overlooking the tower!

When I see pictures of other buildings being built I see steel sticking out of the core to attach floor beams why do I not see any of that on this core?

When are they starting the surrounding city? One thing I enjoyed about watching the burj Khalifa was all the other towers, roads and mall being built as well.

At burj khalifa they build steel cages for the walls at the ground and then they just lifted them up, i think it's the same here.
