Those braces are for the wing bracing. There are last mechanical floors, which are all braced with that giant steel trusses. Check some old pics of lower mech floors construction. New crane will be mounted at the very top of he concrete, like on the Culwullas diagram.

At the most,the next decade or so

As far as being the tallest. There are a few taller ones in the works,but not official or in the near future,The Al Burj looks cool,but ya never know.

We all are making big mistakes with the discussion for the next WTB.Until the BD it was only building a few meters taller.but now it is at one go building the tallest tower and the tallest structure built ever.i thing history rising fits perfect.and history wont rise for along time again IMO.we can witness something really unique and th other 1000m+ towers are nothing morethan hot air i meanhow long there is the al burj discussion it was deplaced than they change narly monthlythe height etc....... i thing BD will hold the title extremly long time.and nooenknows if this isnt the tower which will exceed the 1000m mark i mean for proportional reasons they can add some floors on each wing and they have a better propotion.

I thought I read that the trump building in chicago is using the best concrete pump in the world. and it was pumping concrete higher then has ever been attempted.

maybe I read just in the US? what kind of pump is used here?

I think they will start the cladding above the 3rd mechanical floors. The concrete is completed.

Burj Dubai does not use a single pump to get the concrete all the way to the top. The first pump is at ground level......which takes the concrete to about half the way up the tower....then a second pump sends it all the way to the top. So its a series of pumps, not a single one like in Trump Tower Chicago.
