Shorter buildings should be on the water front. Taller buildings can overlook the shorter ones. They can't vice versa.

But the whole superblock zoning is screwed up anyways. Very few people in these buildings will have any view other than their neighbors living rooms.

Wow, now there's alot of steel. It looks like it's almost ready to peak out of the ground. With a project as large as this, I hope to see another update soon.

If they keep this pace, I say less than a month. So far so good. Keep it up guys!

Is it planned to remove the big pipes which are in the angle before climbing or not?

I guess they will pour one or maybe two more floors before removing them, because then the structure has to hold the groundpressure.

Bramble, once this is out of the ground do you know how fast you will expect to complete each floor (once it gets going)?
Marina 101 is doing something like a floor every 3 or 4 days!

Also would you be able to tell us when you expect to reach some milestones such as podium complete, when you expect to start cladding, etc.

One more thing. Once you reach the higher floors those cantilever pods will have to be built. Will the those be built out of steel while the rest of the tower is made from concrete?

If you can't answer all of this it's OK.

I think they are just preparing the new access road , if the Marina Arcade piling done they cant use that site any more.Will be the same problem for the Pentominium as well.

It will be a nightmare for them because there is just a small service road, see here:
