Come on guys, be logical. How can anyone really believe that the hole shown in the last pictures is for a 5 storey small building?

That is DEFINITELLY for a BIG tower and the fact that a lift pit is not present doesn't mean anything, since there are different lift technologies a pit may or may not be neccessary. Also the hole will NOT get bigger, as someone stated above.

(I'm not a professional but I've seen/experienced alot of towers going up)

Actually I got confused from his comments too becouse in one page he was saying the hole is for the tower, and in the next he was saying the opposite.

Two more things to support my thinking:

1. Look at the amount of the rebar used for the foundation. No way they'll be using that much for a 5B* + 5F structure, regardless to the approximity to water and the water table present.

2. Look at the rebar for the pillars and compare it with the worker standing nearby. Do you really belive that such a thick pillar/column is neccessary in a 10* levels structure?

* Presuming that there are 5 underground floors

I assume you mean when I said this:

I was being sarcastic. I almost put the word Experts in quotation marks but I didn't want to push my luck.

I'm usually more interested in holes on beautiful women but this one really has my curiosity going.

It depends on the type of structure. For sure those pillars are too small for a big tower.
Also the pit wall reinforcement structures look unfit for the task. If I had to bet, then this is going to be a circular ramp for an underground parking, as Giovani-Kun said.
