After the pours, I'd be curious:

I suspect this layer along with the other two preceding deep slab pours will act as a massive transfer slab structurally supporting the entire elevator shaft and central floors areas for the entire building. Those 60 degree cross members on the ground floor appear to be designed to support local weight only and add structural rigidity. Comments please from anyone directly working on the structure of this building.

I think you are correct.

Reminds you of granny's couch, doesn't it? Too good not to cover in plastic sheets!

I walked by the building yesterday afternoon, and took a peek inside. It looked like there was a set of stairs in the centre leading to below ground in the centre of the space.

Is it standard practice now to start putting the cladding on the lower levels while the upper levels are still being poured? I thought they used to pour the whole building and then do cladding, but perhaps I misremember. More exciting this way for sure.
