As close as all the other towers are to each other ... but yeah, close.

Piling must be done or else some other reason.

Anyway, regardless of the reason I think this will go on hold for a very long time starting quite soon.

Even if it's mothballed it will eventually be built.

Not on hold yet. They put in some more of those pipes on the top right side of the construction site.

Good news Malec. It probably isn't the main contractor on the site but there still is progress. Looks like this is gonna be a very deep hole. I think they will excavate a couple of meters below the horizontal supports.

Looks like bracing to support the retaining walls... So... Excavation of the pile caps may start soon :-)

I wonder if it's all presold. If so they should be able to complete it. Mind you, some may have paid initial deposits but cannot meet progress installments.

I remember some posts way back when quoted the developers stating something like 75% of the building pre-sold. Undoubtedly a few sellers have backed out since then, but just as likely some more have sold as well. Let's hope this one goes forward no problems.

That was pretty impressive site coverage once again Imre!
The question is: what are those blue poles?
My guess: movement or pressure detectors to check that everything along the wall is stable.

I think so, same as those used around Infinity Tower's site when they started emptied it.

its to provide lateral bracing for the diaphram wall, there is over pressure of the sides when you dig down and dewater as much as they will have to.
You see a lot of it in very cold cliamtes for the same reason

Isn't it = drilling in English? BTW, the company is Italian owned (now).

I know a PentHouse is the unit located on the top floor(s) of a building; yet below you can clearly see that they advertise this building will be a 120-floor all PentHouse.

I know it's just merchandising, but, do they base that statetment upon something in particular? Maybe all units have very large terraces or something
