And also hopefully they rise the bottom of the red crane from the 15th Floor, so that they can finish the floor plates on the core.

The tapering design makes it impossible to have rooms up there.

Maybe yes.
But with the many sandstorms in the desert environment, it will not be feasible. Too much chances for malfunctioning (polluted rails, switches, etc.)..

They Could of just made it a few Restaurants. the first floor be the kitchen (where you get your food or Beverage.) and then use a elevator and go to a higher level that has a table to sit on next to a window.
They could also make a observatory floor so that they don't need that Sky Terrace.

Yes maybe , but if the architects did it this way i guess they have their reasons.
