What's going on here? There is nothing permanent about this.

What do you mean? They are building the climbing form assembly for the core. This is totally temporary and features reusable forms that open and close to allow workers inside to place the rebar before closing back up and being filled with concrete.

Thank you. I knew it was temporary I just didn't know its function. Now I do.

^Understandable. Looks permanent because the formwork is shiny and new. Typically, they're orange and rusty but the problem is that GCs don't have any old ones lying around in their equipment yards thanks to the most tremendous construction boom in Chicago history! They're all spoken for!

So much respect for these construction workers. Not only do they work in dangerous and precarious situations, now it's the weather. The guy above is doing something with that 2x4 while balancing on minimal foot support all while carrying a cumbersome tool belt and safety harness.
