It might be a matter of the language changes in spellings. For example in Poland we don't say "London", but "Londyn", which might actually appear as a typo to others.

So it seems this is the outline of the tower, but they have to dig all the way around it.

In China they build a giant ring, in Russia they build a giant pentagon shape for the excavation.

Amazing project, I'm glad to see it finally take shape from first seeing the renders. I just really hope that this project doesn't get cancelled or go on-hold for a few years.

Lol! On a more serious note, it's great to see this one going up. Fingers crossed for a smooth completion.
