Kinda agree with you. They are really slow, considering the high amount of machinery used on such a small plot. Even if they have to dig the piles very deep due to the soil condition...

It looks like it will be an interesting place to visit when all of this has been completed. Looks like a complete mess down there! Love it!

BIG thanks, Dubai Skyscraper
However You've brought bad news - they haven't started yet even foundation works, as we can see on photos above
There are maybe some steel-concrete columns in the ground, but where is big round or square hole prepared for foundations ?
In fact, the main 729m-tower is NOT under construction

That's not correct. Piling on the main tower started 12 months ago and was completed somewhen in 2014. Currently they are building the retaining wall at the outline of the plot, and probably some last piles for the annex building

OK, it sounds better
So this time they weren't digging a few levels underground, but were only pilling, as You mean ? I suppose, some multilevel parking lots will be on overground levels ? A little strange - probably first time they haven't use underground for parking

The diagram seems to show 5 basement levels, but they may not be for parking.


Does anyone know: At about the 144th floor, the small projections on each side - are they observation platforms?
