And how do you now that? That doesn't look like slurry wall, and will be directly under the tower so how you can say that this is not part of the tower? If you have any source proving that this is not part of the tower please share with us, becouse I'm not certain about my feellings too.

come on, activate your brain patrykus . how can this be a wall a part of the tower when there's not even a hole or a pilling progress . you'll see the first wall maybe in 1-2 years

Don't make me an idiot My brain is working well, you can be sure about that. I'm not saying that this are walls literally, Im just wondering if this "something_looks_like_walls" is part of a towet, becouse some of you have obsesion of making some projects U/C status even one year after ground braking ceremony

Just look at picture below. It is look like they preparing site to do something, or they do something?

It has nothing to do with the tower structure alone, it is for ground work preps. They will start digging a pretty big hole now, very similar to SWFC. Sometime late next year the construction site will look like this:

Thanks for constructive answer. So you are saying that that walls will be removed (digget up actually) in later time. So what is their present purpous? Actually this is first time i see something like this is being done before digging hole.

Looks to me like that structure might have been there before the tower's location was set. Could have been a plaza design of sorts...looks like a slab to me on the flat parts.

I doubt very seriously there is a concrete wall of any kind on the perimeter of the tower....looks like all glass and steel to me.

This tower has a very unique design...one of the better designs I have seen. It will be fun to watch the construction process!

When you think about tower construction, when have you ever seen a concrete wall go up on the outside perimeter first? I never have and I've been watching tower construction since the 70's.

So knowing that it is not a part of the new tower, what do you think it was? There's not doorway cut into the walls or any visible component other than the concrete.
