Here's a closer look at the site. Excavations and construction are a-go.

There really needs to be something done about Plaza Rakyat though; that neglected site to the bottom needs either a jump-start or a wrecking ball.

Just ignore the troll. He will be banned for baseless statements.

He has nothing to contribute to this thread other than his long rants about life

Sorry for digressing, but what is most impressive are the recent images captured by this Mr. Ton Zijlstra. Thought it came from some DSLR cameras but if you went to his full KL album, it was basically a point & shoot camera. The zoom is impressive for such a camera. I do think he captured lots of interesting details that might often be overlooked by locals..

Why, you mean because it's a round shape?
Because that doesn't matter, with megatalls where you see this kind of hole the construction pit is almost always larger than the towers floorplates, the core and (I assume) supercolumns will start in the pit and the floors will be formed there.

Round holes are more common than square ones anyway, because the constant curvature of their edge has no "weak points" that are more subsceptible to cave-ins.

Round holes are used because they are strong.
The problem with square holes is that you end up with a lot of force on the middle of the walls.
Just look at Dubai for what happens when you make square holes.

And for those who are complaining about how long it is taking, the foundations for a building this size always takes ages. once it gets going though, it will probably shoot up.

Beautiful design. The round hole reminds me of the never built Spire building in Chicago

Dude, if you really are serious, there are more relevant threads to discuss this issue:

Urban Planning Ideas & Discussions

KUALA LUMPUR | Federal Teritorry | Nation Capital City

Countdown to 2020!

This thread is for PNB118 discussion. Talking more about the issue here would lead to this thread getting derailed.
