So judging by the image the current height is just shy of 110 meters and 27 floors?

You can rest assured that the designers know what they are doing on a project of this scale! Not only do the original designers know what they are doing but the designs are double and triple checked by independent engineers prior to construction starting. Also during construction the quality of the reinforcing steel and the concrete that is being poured is constantly being checked to make sure it conforms to the specifications. The liability on a job like this is extremely high for everyone make sure everything is done correctly.

Concrete is extremely strong in compression (downward forces) but is relatively weak when being flexed. That's why the reinforcing steel is put inside of the concrete because steel is very good at resisting the flexing.

its VERY approximately. You can know the height exactly only if you put the measuring equipment on the roof (and even then youll get a little measuring error) or contact the construction managers and ask them.

this is to be finished by 2018? they have a lot of work to do- my guess is a future economic downturn will see this tower never reach 1000m. love to be proved wrong though.

Well, it can never finish in 2018 with this pace. That's for sure...
