They haven't set the curtainwall anchors on the south side of that infill corner, so it's not "ready" just yet. Though if it were me I'd wait to pour all four corners at the same time. Way more efficient to keep them all forming and pouring at the same pace. And it's not as though having that one corner poured really does anything for them, logistically.

Thanks. Just thought they were setting this corner up as a test run before tackling the others, plus there has been lots of concrete on site that last week or two.

If I was going to hazard a guess, that one corner looks more like the kind of thing you'd send a few guys to putter on if they got held up somewhere else because a delivery got delayed or a piece of equipment wasn't available or the engineers wanted to go over something. Don't want to send them home and cost them a day's pay, it needs to get done sooner or later anyway, so let them bang it off and get some production in. It's not a complicated pour, definitely not something they'd need to do a test run of.

I'm sure it's totally safe but those diagonal steel beams look like they could rip off from the weight of the corners one day lol. Anyhow, this is starting to look quite dramatic already. When I saw the photos here yesterday I literally sighed and smiled after such a long wait! :')
