Why the pit on the photo is less than a circle with piles in Google Map

It makes sense they start later with the cabling as, as you can see in the pictures, until a height of around 200 m the tower has no cable connected to it, which means:
  1. As long as the tower is not higher than 200 m, no cable is necessary.
  2. The tower shall support itself until that height.

200m is too low, the cables are not for support but more for stability, so expect to see it very tall before they start on them cables.

No source. Just estimation looking the renders. I just meant that the base of the tower has no stabilisation through cables.

*Never up to date. Usually 6 months behind - on average. The earliest I've seen was years old, the latest was updated about 3 months prior to publishing (the policies, I presume).

Rest assured it's enough piling. Piling for a 100m tower and piling for a 1100m tower will look the same at the surface because by its very nature and purpose you only ever see the top 1m or so of it, but if you had x-ray eyes and could look beneath the surface you'd see there's more piling than for a 100m tower.

The Site from Afar:



Finally to those who are wondering, yes there was activity on site, and lots of cement trucks drove by me! the place is insane
That's way wider than I expected. If the whole tower is this wide, with the core taking up such little space in the center, how does it make sense to leave so much empty space? A quick guesstimate, but it seems to me that each floor could have about 150-200sq/m of usable space. Every floor could be used for something. They could easily make two and three floor luxury units in it, and they could certainly fit four or more hotel rooms per floor. I don't get why they intend to keep most of this tower empty.

The base of it will be around Ø 30 m, no core.

I've found an article which dates back from may 2013. Visibly Emaar already announced its plans a long time ago.

Great news! The Dubai map has been updated, indeed.
Here is The Tower's site location with the updated map: wikimapia.org/#lat=25.198&lon=55.355&z=19
The new map looks around 3 months old, right? My estimation is based upon the Business Bay sites condition, mostly.
