The last picture I recall seeing was of just flat empty dirt. Their really isn't anything to see. The plot is right next to 23 Marina. It would be nice if someone could stroll by and confirm it though. But I'm fairly certain no major work is being done at the moment.

NO

Quote:
A penthouse apartment or penthouse is an apartment or condominium that is on one of the highest floors of an apartment building or condominium. Penthouses are typically differentiated from other apartments by luxury features.
A building can have only ONE Penthouse. (even if is 12 of 120 floors)

It will have 119 one floor apartments, and ONE penthouse.
