also it had the biggest concrete pours in the history of supertalls buildings for the foundation as well if i recall correctly. i suppose it indeed is a very strong structure. but afterall it also has one of the tallest roof heights in the world and does taper a lot less than other towers, so a strong structure and foundation is needed.

i think so. Ping An's spire is already at 600m and Shanghai Tower has a pretty large crown, this building goes pretty much to the top, however i think Shanghai Tower and Ping An are very comparale with the size of this building. they both might have a larger core and be wider at least at the base though. in the SSP diagrams it is rather visible, not sure how accurate the diagrams are, but they visualize the sizes quite well.

for burj khalifa it is hard to say, there is actually a number that is above the highest occupied floor and below the spire that is considered roof height, but i always forget what it is.

The top-most floor can be called the roof.

It may look a bit like Chow Tai Fook, But we'll probably not see cladding here before the end of the year?

I doubt we'll see cladding this year, but nothing is impossible

with the X-es you can really easily see progress on the tower because it gives it a scale.
