The piling contractor seams to be Swissboring, the same one who did it also for the adjacent 23Marina Tower (rising in the background).

Come on malec you've been long enough in here to know how it works.

They have to do the site diaphragm wall first, then escavate a little and dewater, then drive/bore the piles and then the big excavation to reach the pile caps.

The only thing that smells about this project is this tower will only have one residential unit per floor. I don't know how ordinary people can afford apartments the size of a common richer's house.

I like what seems to be the frontal part. But not sure about its back.

Great to see that the construction of this beauty has started.
It should be UC in the thread title now
