It'd be here, but I don't think any free versions have been posted yet.

Will this be a pure office tower? The reason I ask is because Burj 2020 will have to be taller than 729m.

I imagine you'd have to have a very solid foundation for a tower like this. I'm not sure what the ground situation is like, anything like it is for Shanghai Lujiazui?

If foundations are to be complete by july wouldn't that make this u/c already?, if not I cant see how they could complete them in such a short time for a tower this tall.

Relatively better than that in Shanghai lujiazui.A bulletin board on the ground shows the project(foundations)has a time limit of 270 days,which started from November 2013

They are preparing the piling process as well as the excavation. I'm relatively certain all the small machinery is working on the slurry walls. So not U/C yet

edit: On the other hand, It's pretty hard to tell what these machines are actually doing. We never had a close up shot..

Slurry walls are around the perimeter. They are piling now at the tower site. Piling is construction.
