Thanks Kanye. Seeing those pipes sticking up looks much different from other skyscrapers I've seen going up.

The north west corner can't be build because the concrete ring is there.

I asked before in a previous post, what's going on with that corner? I doubt it's a mistake since builders are pretty much on target when it comes to high profile projects like this one.

Lovely update! Curious, why do the streets always look empty in this area?

The area down there, Futian Free Trade Zone, is pretty remote compared to other parts. They mostly have residential blocks down there and nothing else which would people/cars force to go there. So the only vehicles you see are some delivery lorries or people on their way to work/back home.

Looks like this one has barely a core. most of the load may be carried by the columns?

It seems so, those hollow round columns are very strong.
