The diameter of the hole is likely 120m, compare with Chicago spire's 30 meters or pentominium's 60*60m, really huge.
Measure it in google earth.

I'm wondering about those three, four low buildings standing around the pit. Anyone know if they will stand there after completion? That would be a nice mix of new and "old"

They're just dormitories for the workers. They'll be removed once the tower is finished.
