Starting of work is indeed eminent and the main contractor is probably ACC.

Eversendai will work on the steel section, but not sure if the entire tower or only the extention areas at the side will be build out of steel.

Dunno. Drove by on Sunday but on the elevated ramp and couldn't take a pick from there into the site.

Combination of steel and reinforced concrete.

I know that the central core will be reinforced concrete but my doubt about the rest of the structure being steel was that Eversendai (through Hyder) has ordered only 2500 tons of special steel profiles and that seamed kind a low ... unless they are doing the same they did in Burj Dubai: order the special steel materials from the only producer of such, and then buy the less special steel from other suppliers.

Hi all.

Nice update Imre. Great news on the contractor info.

I picked this one as one of the projects I am going to watch and save pics of a couple of years ago now so I have pics from the start - sweet. I like the design.

We can see in one of Imre's shots that the hole is over 15 meters deep - comparable to the BD's excavation.

Me too...I was wanted to do that with the Chicago Spire, but since it's in that "silent" situation, I decided to do this with Pentominium...
