This building had a ground breaking ceremony and visible progress on site, the Nakheel Tower has not even started foundation work. So why is this building in the Proposed Page but the Nakheel Tower in the Under Construction Page ??

Please move this thread to Under construction.

- Nakheel Tower foundation work started a year ago.

I think when piling starts it will move to U/C.

I don't think so. I mean there is already a foundation so it should be U/C. It's not anymore a proposal. Its already approved and preparation is being taken. I am not sure why it is still in Proposal. Either way, I am happy that it is for real.

There isn't a foundation, there isn't even a hole..... Come back here in one year and you'll see

Yep, im guessing too, but I believe you do understand what I mean saying unique (you really dont have to tell me that every buliding must have fundations )
Didja ever see post number one in this thread? Take your time and read it very carefully. The post was made on September 6, 2006. Underneath all the proposal renders you'll see this...

Shanghai Tower to pierce clouds at 632m

CONSTRUCTION will start on the would-be tallest building on the Chinese mainland in Shanghai on Saturday. [rest clipped]


Then look at the photo just below this paragraph....I rest my case.

Take your time and look very carefully at the end of the first post, and you will see... "Last edited by z0rg; November 27th, 2008 at 05:48 PM"

But thanks for advice

Did you ask Zorg if he added that pic that day or if he just added what was at the bottom?

Can you prove that all that cement was poured and those raised portions built in a 5 week period as a foundation for the new tower? Doubt it.

Ok thats specially for you. Thats the adress and name of pic you are reffering to: http://i0.sinaimg.cn/dy/c/2008-11-27...1127195510.jpg. There is date 2008-11-27 thats enaugh for you?

And the "walls thing" just cant be there before becouse it stick out below the ground level and therefore it should be visible on ground breaking ceremony, or earler when there was grass on site.

PS. And one more thing: I have never said it is part of fundation, i just said it MAY be structural part of tower. Thats all.

This is like that. In some cases slurry wall isnt directly conected to the tower and then i think it shouldnt be consider as a part of the tower. And in this particular case that walls (nevermind if this is slurry wall or something else) supose to be directly under the tower, and now IF they not gonna to remove it, it WILL be conected to the tower (becouse it is directly under it), so then it should be considere as a part of the tower. I hope you all get my point.

So planet Earth should also be considered part of the tower?

slurry walls are not directly under the tower . they're only for the hole...to hold back the soil. and when the plot is big enough you even don't need them. i believe there was no slurry-wall for the Burj Dubai for example
