Wow, in the last few weeks, the podium on the concourse side
has gone up quickly! A lot has changed since the last Doka aerial
photo. These photos are nothing short of amazing. REally some significant
progress on 2/3 of the podium. Now what remains is the side facing the
city, which hasn't really changed at all during the last 6 months.

I suppose that once they build on that side, they can begin to
take the podium above ground level! I am guessing that we may see that in about 4 months???

It's amazing to see the whole complex with the mall....and the beginnings of a "simulated lake". I always thought the blue regions on the concourse side were supposed to depict the lake zig-zagging right up to the tower, but I guess now we can conclude that this is just fancy paint on the top of the podium, which looks like it is more car-parking.

Fun to see this project grow.

I think for my next update of the cross-sectional diagram next month, I will finally be able to fill in some of the underground portions of the podium. The 3 story car park is almost wrapped around one of the wings, so from a cross-sectional perspective, it may just be legal to fill that part in on the diagram!

I counted 30 floors +/-1

At 3.5m/floor, that's 105m
