the big hole's been ready for the second stage for 2 or 3months but there were news that said that the design is being changed (the observation deck and the pole will be taller ) but the final height is still going to be 336.5mts. so the antenna will be smaller, the note also said that the second stage is about to begin in febreaury, so wait for news, updates, and new renders soon.

that's a 30ft (or so) model of the first 336mts. design, and it's being exhibited on the construction site. I think the new desingn will be similar to the oldest one but not as thin as that one.

this is another model of the oldest design


and this is the old one


i guess the new one will be like this but with "less" antenna and more pole, even though the new design will have less storeys.
