what do you expect? they started 11 months ago, the foundations for a 610m skyscraper need time, at least one year

vanhenrik, you've absolutely no notion how to build a skyscraper ....nobody would use you're method .

1. they build a wall arround the whole plot ( slurry and secant-wall ) but not to the bedrock.

2. do you know how deep they would have to dig until bed rock? veeeery deep....too deep, and nobody needs so much underground floors in such a tower .

Maybe that's why Karlskoga doesn't have any supertall buildings! They keep using the wrong construction techniques. If your idea was used the steel walls would collapse from the outside pressure, flood the site and cancel the project. The same type of thing that happened at the marina project in Dubai.
