I guess because last night i was passing by and i saw 2 new cranes right next to the building like 100-150 meters away it wasn't attached to the building so i guess they start working on it

For me from this angle it looks like there wasn't floor space just concrete construction like concrete mast/sculpture.

The core is looking really impressive and big right now. Maybe it's just my impression but in less than a month the progress and grow of the tower looks really big.

Nice try Mike but this is obviously a fake photo - you've added about 10 floors that aren't there yet!

This post, my 1000th post on Skyscrapercity, I dedicate this first human constructing structure that rises to beat the symbolic height of 1000 m/ONE KILOMETER - my dreams from childhood are coming true

And this is not only a great record structure, but also very unique and beautiful tower building

C'mon, these pics and the video are blurred and don't show anything. Please remove them, they're worthless. We appreciate your effort though. Thank you for trying.
