There actually pretty strong. We had one here during the bathroom renovation, and they just hauled it out liquid and all off the lawn onto the truck with no effort.
Those old enough may remember a movie by Billy Crystal and Robin Williams, I think called Father’s Day, where …. Oh never mind, don’t want to ruin anyone’s morning by thinking of this.

It's hard to know for sure because the upper floors are covered in those blue panels, but I think the highest poured floor is the 15th and the core is up to the 18th.

I don’t think so. The “core” walls are not poured separately but they are constructed along with the other walls (so the core walls are the square inside the # shape with all the rebar connected together.)

The floor plates for the core (i.e. hotel hallways and later elevator hallways for the residential sections) are constructed afterwards. It is hard to see through the climbing forms how many floors behind they are but they were several floors behind.

What you see as the core is the climbing system used to attach the core wall forms and serve as a staging platform for materials and infrastructure (Concrete pump, small crane, etc.) to help with constructing the inner core hallways below.)

I think for the regular floor plates they have poured the 16th floor and they are now building the walls that will support the 17th floor which will be the first mechanical section.

Or looking at it in another way, this is the hotel penthouse and the hotel will be done after this.

i could see them easily adding netting around the first mech level, removing the ground level hoarding and having a presentable and usable mainfloor retail space very soon
