Some technical equipment gets installed in four corners... maybe for air conditioning?

they should have put a couple parking garages on each street and had the buildings go right to the ground instead of a garage on every single building

on this pic (lower right corner) we can see the new cladding on the podium they started a few days ago. With marble-like tiles and ornament fixtures (hopefully a light effect!!)...

are you being serious?! what for?? Just looks?

let's not forget there are creatures living inside these things. who would want to carry grocery bags down the street. or buy a 50 Million plot to build a car park.

another advantage of the podiums is that your pool and sitting area is elevated, which actually makes for great views. then the first residential floors won't be on street level.

just out of interest, where do your park your car?

These people rides bicycles and public transports (not that's anything wrong with it) so they don't give a crap where cars can be parked .... and of course they idolize the "street life".

Good to have this (and the Pentominium) thread back after 2 days!

Like at The Torch' top, lots of small scaffolding elements are used for 23 Marina, but here we see better what's happening. And still the assistance of a big crane is needed, for example to put the sloping steel beams, I bet. Looks like those are also fixed to the lower spire part in the centre.

"Let's go for a walk around 90th floor, according to the maker... in fact this must be the double-size last tech level below the roof and above the 3 penthouse floors."


I was told that it was the 90th floor when I was taking that video... chill out ... and just enjoy the video
