Thanks for these amazing pics !
Does anyone of you know if the diameter of the base of the tower will be the one defined by the piles (green circle) or the one created by the wall delimiting the foundations (red circle) ?

(sorry for this awful draw )

Piles you see are only the ones that are dug up ... I am sure many more are waiting to be unearthed during excavation. Concerning the diameter, well we are basically months away from having this question answered before our eyes.

Every time I see the foundation, I find it fascinating that such a tall and massive structure is going to emerge out of a pit of sand and dirt. Amazing

To my estimate, the ring wall is far too thin to act as a foundation, or a part of it.
The actual foundation will thus come on the piles that are now being dug out.


A few months patience is all we need...

Yes, but only mixed with hazelnuts for extra stability

The Eiffeltower send the first radio signal in Europe, the World Trade Center was a business hub with a lot of working space, Burj Dubai has at least a hotel in the base, but wtf it this?

Of course it is interesting to watch it being build and breaking height limits. But even more interesting will bw how it looks like in 30 years.

Stop trolling ... you just contradicted yourself in an pathetic way! This building has a HOTEL! Plus other functions not revealed yet ... like it or not this is getting built and is historical and you need to learn to read before you type nonsense of a post

This is basically a hybrid of a guyed mast and a skyscraper, and I can't think of any other similar building.This is indeed a special piece of architecture.

Being a landmark, having an observation deck, and being the world's tallest structure. Exactly like this one in 1888:

Most useless building? Matter of personal preference, I guess.

Any Idea when will it rise above the ground? (even expectations are welcome)
