the core will always be several floors ahead of the wings. The core of Burj Khalifa was 10-15 floors ahead all the time.

I have a feeling that the rate of tower growth is proportional to the crude oil price.

That video is pretty exciting. The green roofed building/park looks so exciting.

Is there much solar technology being built into projects like this?
