Just better to actually understand news when they're posted here. But it's no big deal, Gabriel already told us the gist of it.

Is this the new render or something you have photoshopped? I am not sure about that yet.

this is not a render of this tower but the new Emaar Project next to it! This is only a rough representation since it's not the focus point of this image

But considerig the size of the tower, there is something so funny when we look at this punny beginning

It would have been perfect if it was a picture of the very first rod with the title "first photo of dubai the tower"

I guess this piling is only for the tower itself.
When this is ready, tower foundation and tower core can start.

For the cables, 4 foundations are necessary (only pulling forces, so a complete different technique will be used).
The cables will become necessary when the core reaches a certain height, so they have some more time to make these 4 foundations.
