^yes its very misleading. lots of people are gonna think its topped out. but little do they realize its just the concrete section. still a substantal part of the tower to go being another 200m high!

here is an amended diagram showing the 3 levels BELOW GRD which = 15.75m. then the 3.7m think slab! and 50m deep piles.
If you include depth below grd of piles reach (70m) and planned 818m pinnacle height, thus total = 888m! (2912ft).

Supports for the exterior steel crane?

(If not these, how/where do they intend to brace it?)

No, I don't think so. I think those have something to do with the mechanical floors, and pretty soon the wing will cover that area up. No idea where they will actually mount the crane for assembling the steel section.

These supports have nothing to do with Mechanical floors. They are to brace the crane (Path) which is carring the ALIMAK lift to shift materials and so on from floor to another.

When the concrete work starts at this area, this lift will be removed and installed somewhere else and so on.......

And why the diagram with your stamp of approval would be more correct that the one of Culwulla?
