don't know for sure if they're for the wall. i only think they're too small to be for the foundation of a 632m tall tower

Looks like something is definately happening. Why is this in proposed, but the Nakheel Tower is in U/C?
They should be the other way around, because more is happening here than at the NHT, and NHT has been postponed.

Can you guys stop trolling? It is Prep, not Pro. We have been talking about that shit for one month already. I don't think it is so difficult to understand that digging a hole doesn't mean "construction" properly. We will change it to U/C once they start setting the first foundation stuff of the building. All supertall threads follow the same process. They sometimes stop working for months once the hole is dug, btw. You can check other threads with Prep status if you want and compare.

That is absolutely not true. It depends completely on buildup of the soillayers. If there is a hard enough layer on let's say 15m down, than they can make piles with a lenght of 15 meter. But in most cases with supertalls the pileloads are very high. In order to hold the tower up the loadcapacity of a soillayer needs to be very high. Most of the time this layers are quite deep.

But it depends on the geological area.

Hope this clears a lot

That's probably the depth of the piles not the foundation.
