I GUESS the reason is that land may be very costly so they try to make maximum use of the land by making the podium as big as the entire land

That's a lot of condos. I guess all the kept mistresses have to live somewhere.

That makes sense. It's hard to tell what the streetscape, if there is any, is like down there, so that may be a factor as well.

The "streetscape'' is at the Marina waterfront promenade at the edge of the super-block.

So nothing on the interior, running between the towers? Or is that more residential and truck access?

I should note, I'm not criticizing, just looking for clarification.

Core and Floor

- Core jumped today.
- Floor poured today.

This latest floor was done pretty quickly, 11 days after the previous.

I like the unusual shape of the floor plate. Nice to see something different now and then.

Actually the core jumped on Wednesday, and the 14th floor is "small" just like the 12th is.

Ok, I see that the core has jumped again. On Wednesday only the lower half of the 14 tag was visible. So apparently the core can jump in two stages.
