There is a video on LinkedIn of the self climbing formwork for the core making its first move up one level:

Intriguing, Mr. Bond...

Alright, this might be a stupid question, but I will ask nonetheless.

Are different types of concrete used for different parts of the tower? Like floor plates vs. elevator core vs. floor corners vs. mega column filler etc?

Thanks in advance to whoever answers!
 

whatever

Yes, it's a different mix. They also have more and less viscous mixes for getting into denser rebar mats. It's not the same concrete in every truck

Any idea what this is? I assumed it was a new external lift at first until I remembered they’re building elevators in the core.
Temporary one...until they get the one in the core up to speed?

It's possible the core lifts will only be used when they get above the hotel levels. Thinking they'll want to finish out the retail and hotel levels while they build the residences? So you have (the existing) exterior lift that goes up to the pool level deck, then another one up to the beginning of the residences? You don't want workers and materials having to go through the hotel to the core lifts...
