Those look like pools for the slurry+dirt, and the slurry without dirt, and the slurry/dirt separator in between. This is my best guess, does anyone actually know ? ( tank you again Brad ).

Just a little bit: they need some time to cover the section they are working for and heat the air inside. It's not a problem.

STT Group goes IPO
http://www.vedomosti.ru/newspaper/ar...7/11/29/137033

Shortly: The company will be renamed to Russian Land to avoid of mix-up with ST Group, which was recently renamed to Snegeri. An estimated cost of the company is $10 billion. 20% will be distributed on IPO, so Russian Land expect about $2bln profit.

In all the world, this is one of my favorites. It is as bold and powerful-looking as it is sleek and graceful. I love it.

Small pits ? I'd hate to see a big one.
Thanks for the spectacular update.

^Such an amazing contribution to the thread. Maybe if you explained what the hell you were talking about your post might not be the complete suckfest that it is. One word and a smiley does not constitute making a post (in most cases).

Anyway, I haven't checked this thread in a while, nice to see some progress from the last time I checked. I think this is a beautiful tower. Congrats Russia!
