Does anyone know why they chose the supercolumn structure? I assume that building a typical concrete building at those heights would be a lot less flexible in terms of unit sizes/supporting wall locations on each floor. However, why supercolumns vs. a more typical concrete core+steel structure? Is it due to footprint/maximizing usable space? the specific location of the site and the way it attaches to bedrock? or some other reason altogether? I've always been curious; sorry if it has already been brought up.
