YEAH! Now growing from the ground level! I suppose that they took so many time because concrete structures are difficult to build in below 0ēC conditions.

below 0ēC is not something special. entire foundation slab (which is second biggest after Taipei 101) was poured at -5(day) - -15(night) on 2 april just in 36 hours.

year was spent on digging (there is hard limestone bed), finishing of planning, negotiations with investors, working on pile's field etc

They have to take care of the concrete, use special concretes.... If not water can't evaporate from the concrete and if it frozen it could break the pieces That's why they have to take special care, like heat the columns and concrete elements.
At least it's what we do here in Spain when they have to pour concrete in this kind of conditions, as well as when it's too hot and water evaporates too fast, they add water to the concrete element to make this process slow and avoid imperfections.
