That bleak spot of land looks pretty small for a tower that will sprout up to 2,000 ft. tall!

Harry, I hope you didn't mind me taking the liberty of using a few of your pics. If you want me to take it down, just say the word.

I dont like the location too... mh dont know... i think it will look kind of silly for such a big thing to be fitted in a little gap.

The base should be standing "free" with daylight shining in. Now when you're standing inside you see a highway right in front of your face or a housewall...

I think it looks too squeezed. Yah in the renders or models it's cool, because there is space around it. But in reality... especially that it's face to face to a 2 story highway...

This is not a quote or re-hash, it is brand new original work, we should all be grateful that he took the time to do this.

Quoting photos to demonstrate or elaborate is also quite fine, the no no is taking an entire photo filled post and simply re-posting it.

Foundation work

Plan of what they are going to do, N is to the Left.
I still need to make the Secant piles and Slurry wall sections to scale.

Secant wall has progressed over almost the entire N side, the Slurry wall has been finished on the NE ( Upper Left ) run and the SE corner has been prepared.
