So, then, it's not being built yet? lol

Good diagram, alsaif. According to it: the wings are at level 14 and the core is at 24. The writing close to the current level says that the core is typically 5 ahead of the wings, and is at max 10 above the wings - which is the case now. So it seems as if we will have to wait for the wings to rise more, before this project will go any higher...
