According to an article by New York YIMBY, the concrete core of 50 Hudson Yards is approaching the halfway mark:

The reinforced concrete core of 50 Hudson Yards is approaching the midpoint of its ascent to the supertall’s 1,011-foot parapet. Designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners and developed by Oxford Properties and Mitsui Fudosan, the skyscraper will be the largest structure by volume in the first phase of Related Companies‘ Hudson Yards master plan, yielding 2.9 million square feet.

Recent photos show the building’s core continuing to climb ahead of the assembly of the steel superstructure.
