It doesn't matter Imre. It makes my day when you blitz this website with your updated photos! :-D

O interesting piling question. IMO I doubt the same foundation techniques are practiced everywhere. The soil is varies all over the place. I'm interested in an expert opinion on that question tho.

That hole looks like it's for draining the water out of the ground.

They are referring to the small hole on the side of the plot.

Maybe it is a temporary water collector, maybe it will be used for the base of one of the tower cranes, maybe it is both ... or none of the above.

Ok, is not exactly on the side and next to the perimeter wall, but it is not for the inner core either.

Gutting if you brought at 370m expexting a great sea view LOL.

That will certainly be one impressive area when all the tower are complete

Actually this is the only tower in the area that was never advertised for the views, despite the shear height. Kudos to the developer for that.
