good render... only need 3 towers more. (on the left side)

- Sulafa Tower (285m) - on the left of Marina 101, in front of The Pentominium.

- Marina Pinnacle (260m) and Mag 218 (275m) behind La Reve.

The Pentominium looks much better from the street than in skyline, due to those balconies...

If they had done only test piling, then of course they had to cover the site again, level it and continue with the rest of the piling. You can't operate if there are things sticking up around you.

The previous work was all still testing then. Hope they start the real piling now but if it doesn't go on hold I assume it'd be about a month before they start again since they have to analyse their data (if they got any. They smashed up those piles within only a couple of days of revealing them.)

It had to be testing. Look at that blue cables, they had to be there for testing purposes. But.. it means they realy just going to... start pilling now (sic). I thought that timetable says they should now start construction, not pilling And, are they really going to continue with that project? I think that for 80% they will, but what they have done in last week is just not understandable for me. I mean, look what they have done. Uncover the piles, smash it and then cover with sand again. What for? They still cant drill in the same place where deeper still are parts of testing piles. They even bend piles rods (not cut off!) so now making the future drilling even worse And the last thing, why they din't informed us that pilling will take two years, not one. Becouse, really, if they want now to put hundret (or so) piles in the place they probably need another year.. And all that is even more sad when you remind yourself that that is the last worth watching u/c tower in "DA HIGHIEST BLOCK"

Every building in that block has totally different design from its neighbors, it's like a museum.and why all the buildings there have small base, I thought the higher the building the bigger the base needed.
