Hi guys.

Technically, the foundation consists of the 955 piles and the raft which is the floor of B5. So the foundation was completed in late March.

They are working on the lower levels and the shots posted today show them pouring the floor of level B2. They appear to be on track to having the floor of the ground level poured by late Sept. which was the latest schedule we've heard in here.

Great progress.

And by imagining the size of the humongous hole you can now imagine the size of the HUMONGOUS skyscraper-to-be.

The trucks all look like a child's toys. What a HUGE construction site that is.

Whoa, just a few days ago, it was a giant hole. Now it's a giant concrete puddle.

Thanks for the post, Nordschleife.

Wow, fantastic shots! That's a lot of concrete right there! Not too far from the rim now!
