Wow, they are really going to make that ball on top a very distinct part of the building. I think I like it. Very special. Is it also the main mass damper ?

The foundation takes its time here because it's build on difficult ground.

Knowing the difficult ground (after pre-construction geological researching) they should been started building the tallest tower FIRST, as the works were expected to take much time...

The gate of the Orient took 11 years and is still not finished... I don't think the taller one will take longer this time around

When I visited the site, i saw so many people working, machines coming in and out the site. Piling being ready on trucks next to the site. Etc etc etc... I can't believe it is so slow.

Thanks. Very good info here. About the mass dampers and everything...
