Would have loved to see this cluster closer to the Porta Nouva area. What is the distance between the two areas as the crow flys?

Also I read somewhere that this building is a hotel not an office building. Please confirm?

I love the elevators on the outside of the building. It would be a great view on the way down in the elevator to see the view all the way to the Alps

So Kenzotangesque!

this building is only an office building, the news you have read concerns the 'curvo' 's building, but are not confirmed yet

Please post a better and more reliable update or I'll have to move it back. Works in the ''area'' could be anything and is not specific enough.

You should maybe move it back. It should be u/c in a couple of weeks but as long as we don't get more updates "Prep" should be the right status, like it is on the italian forum

You're right, but visual confirmation will be hard to get for some time, as the site is deep inside the closed off CityLife-area all around it and hidden behind the building in the foreground.
The excavation visible from the webcam is largely related to the Tre Torri station of the new M5 subway line, adjacent to the tower.
Yet, according to the statements of the head of Isozaki's studio in Milan, last june, construction activities around the foundations should begin this month at the latest - if not already.
For all those who are interested, here are the links with details, (mostly old) drawings, pics and (new) data of the building, including a video-interview in two parts about the schedule as well.

Building height has unfortunately been lowered to 202 meters, BTW.

Are you able to pin point the exact location within this photo? As it is quite a large construction site.
