This article from April did mention a start date of June 15 so they were actually like right on that:

And their official website also gave a June 15 start date:

Its a coelacanth, it retrieves the fermament. It's locomotion is unique. To move around they most commonly take advantage of up- or down-wellings of current and drift.

Is it a lot different than an auger? I cant find any reading material on it. I've googled coelacanth with construction and all I get is it's a fish. Help!

They are creating stone columns, the same as Aurora did. As I discussed then, it's the preferable method around here these days if your building isn't so tall and heavy that you need even more foundation than they can offer.

The rig is called a Vibroflot, which have variations of course.

Looks like what they are doing is called 'vibro-replacement' to create the column. Existing soil is compacted, and new fill is added either at the top of the entry point of the Vibroflot, or it is injected through the end of it. Looks like the rig they have can do both.
