Any chance we'll see the third crane installed by tomorrow? it looks like they're installing something for it right now.

IIRC the roof height is 329 m, but nevermind, 2 meters don't make a difference.

Third tower crane won't be here until at least February. The crawler is now no longer in operation and will be removed soon.

Two tower cranes can do the job for now.

Yeah, looks like they're removing things rather than installing things, so disregard my previous comment.

It is rising. They've been working on the core for now.

Even the core doesn't seem to be rising. From what I can tell, the only part of the core that's actually risen in a month is the northeast corner.

Give it time. It takes a lot to finish construction prep for a tower like this. The prep is just about wrapping up now, so except faster construction time.

Prep on the core seems to be finishing up and looks like it will rise soon. Porta Johns have been moved to the the top of the core.

It depends on where you have found that data.

The core has risen two floor-ish since they resume the construction (I am not sure if that are exactly two floors but they did two "jumps" or added two levels of concrete walls on the structure.

The first one was with manually placed formwork, they raised the core about 3 meters in order to gain extra height on it to place the formwork lifting system.

With the lifting system installed, they already poured most of a second floor (I think it is still remaining the southwest corner, but on the northwest corner they already did the first jump of the lifting system and they are already placing rebar for a third level.

For now on, They should speed up with regular jumps (But no so fast for now, I guess they will make a jump every about three weeks for now)

The formwork on the core, substantial now to be sure, nevertheless still does not resemble the formwork that was there prior to the vertical work stoppage. What kind of system are they using now?

Doka Super Climber SCP (Automatic climbing internal and external). No climbing cage required for concrete boom as it goes along with platforms in core.
