What if the plot ruptures when the tower is built (wight ect)? I wouldnt want to live there. And yea the location is not good, the tower is too big and the plot too unstable imo.

And how exactly can they work with all the reinforcement that was installed to strenghten the walls?

Like the buildings along the Chicago river,
the re-enforcing pipes will gradualy be
replaced with concrete to support the side walls.

The Waterview tower had a much larger set of suport pipes,
By the time the tower reached ground level, all the concrete
supports were in place, easing all fears of any collapse.

The same will happen with the Infinity tower.

Literacy is overrated.

I still think it was a miracle no one was killed when that wall collapsed. That would have turned it from frustrating to tragic.

If this building wasn't on hold, if the water did not consumed the site, how high do you guys think the building is right now? Because it was on hold for about a year and it took so much time.

Yeah, it helps understand that you are not making any sense at all.

How can the wall collapse if the tower is build? Building the tower means filling the hole with steel and concrete. No hole = no collapse.

You really think you can outsmart us the older guys, don't you kid?

If there would be any problems once its in place it would be leakage, but i doubt that would happen. Unless the whole wall collapses the possibility of leakage is very slim.
