Yeah, that is called 'Empire' And supposed to be 30+ floors.. developed by Ceylon Theaters Ltd. Still I wish this apartment craze will go away and we would get more tall hotel and office towers in the new downtown area :P

It aint a craze but rather what the market dictates.
Investors like residential real estate, as its releativly easy to rent out high end appartments in developing cities.
When there's demand for commercial towers thats what'll be built.
In about 5 years time if things go OK, I reckon you'll start to see all the glass towers youre waiting for...

I am no expert but my guess is it could be some sort of a soil bearing test for foundation that possibly has to be laid over varied soil type. ie. rocky/sandy etc as different soil got different bearing capacity.

the 'Empire Towers' opposite the Dawson Grand are progressing fast. I like both the Dawson Grand and the Empire towers.
