Not a fan of the building's design, but the method of construction has me interested.

I believe it's concrete poured so the piling rigs wouldn't have to slog around in the mud. Some earlier shots show the site very muddy when it rains.
Thanks for the info. I didn't realize that was an early stage picture.

Haven't checked up on ST in a while, so obviously I'm delighted to see how much progress they have made. Great to finally "see" the core above ground. I think from here on in now the build really starts to get interesting.

Next time anybody posts off topic trash in this thread (city vs city, country vs country, politics, whatever) he will be banned for 1 month. I had to delete a lot of posts AGAIN and it is really annoying.

Hi all.

Great to see the lower levels 'completed' with the pouring of the floor of the ground level. They did it by the end of Sept. as was the unofficial 'schedule' we heard - good stuff. 434 pics in my construction folder so far for this project - pretty good coverage for the lower levels, all in all.

Up and away we go with the tower.

Also down we go with the outer areas of the lower levels ?

Is this tower constructed by ecological procedure, not to consume energy?
