Awesome updates Windy

In the final pic showing the slurry wall plans, you mention black dots represent bored pipes. Are you also referring to the red dots or do these represent a different stage of completion?

Its a really fascinating layout. It appears the perimeter is going to support about 90% of the weight of the tower. Very different to the Burj Dubai, for example, which spreads its load evenly across the whole of its footprint.

Many Many thanks to Brad and Windy - the first picture ! makes Chicago's slurry wall digger look like a toy. and the plans !

If you're ever in Chicago I'll buy a round or 2, I even have co-workers from the USSR who can translate.

He brings some bad news. They are changing the project of the foundation and because of this, start of construction of the slurry wall was moved to june 2008 .
I told you there wouldn't be much of a progress until 2008. Especially during the winter period. It looks as if I was right.
I really love this tower as well as the Crystal Island project but I have to say they just don't really fit into the environment with all the communist blocks. Well, maybe the Russian government will decide to demolish all of them in order to build more skyscrapers or other modern architecture - which wouldn't surprise me when it comes to policy/politics... :-(
Well, as politics isn't the subject here, I wish the best of luck for the construction of all these beautiful buildings anyway.

Do you really think modern architectors should build new skyscrapers having in mind all these communist blocks, that will be demolished before 2025?

So where should be skyscrapers built if not between older buildings? On a green meadow? Would they fit there better?

Yes, how about a master plan for areas they plan to build skyscrapers like this one.

Actually I'd prefer building skyscrapers whether in areas which aren't developed yet (like in Dubai for example) or simply don't start construction until the environment/surrounding area is cleared, which means somehow you have to be radical and demolish buildings which don't fit there.
Of course this is always a political discussion, I also think about the "poor" people who have to move but I know the politicians don't really care about them, especially in countries like Russia or China.
So, either do it right and develop a whole area or just don't build at all. What's the point with a glamorous billion dollar skyscraper in the middle of nowhere or in a living area for the working-class, wasteland or whatsoever. See the point?
So I can only hope that in twenty years or something the surrounding areas will look as great as the skyscrapers that will be there!
Right now it seems like money isn't an issue (in Russia/Moscow) or the other way round, it's all about the money, not about the people!

Whoa. Looks like they started digging for the slurry wall. Am I mistaken?
