It does matter. I would draw you a 1km tower and then say its better than cs. But it isnt since nobody are able to build it. Ok right, cs earns its hight honestly as a design. But what i was saying is that is no point comparing projects, that one is u/c and another would be onhold for next couple years and and would restart in much better atmosphere. And that last thing does matter a lot when you want to compare any projects. Its a little bit like comparing esb (witch was build in very bad times) with for exp wtc, and saying witch is better. I thing you get the point.

And if pentominium will be puted on hold, i of course will change my mind, but not for now.

Is there any info on how much of the Pentominininiumium is actually sold yet? If it's less than the Chicago Hole, we've not right to take the piss.

Yet...

I recall reading the developer reported pretty robust sales (I believe well over 50%, maybe even close to 75% pre-sold). If true, then this will have no trouble being built.

Do they want to wait until they have sold all the penthouses before beginning to grow up or is there no link between that 2 things?

(And if there is no link, what are they currently doing in their big hole)?

They're there so the foundation walls don't collapse.

I don't get that either! It looks like they uncovered and discovered them. It does not look like they created it. They unearth these cinlindar findings and not sure what to do now?

Stupid post? I can't even understand you. Half of your words are misspelled and I really have no idea what you are talking about. Also, learn to read better! "Sewers" was never mentioned. Your post is completely useless.

That being said, I did see one useful word. It does make sense that some type of "Braces" to control the ground area. If so, I assume they already dig up that area, placed the braces down, then did a fill up in one section. Then they can go dig deeper in sections without worrying about the sides caving in, etc. If you explained something like that to us, then it would have been a very useful post. Anyway, I do not know how it works and hoping someone on these forums can properly explain it.
