I went 10 pages back and i could not find one single post on a construction picture. The first post only mentioned the final design and it was edited in April.

What? Do you expect me to read all f***ing 40 pages in this thread?

Members following this thread could find tell me the information in maybe 10 seconds while if i had to go through all of these it would take me hours. Why so hostile? I wasnt even complaining, i was simply asking a question politely, no need to sound so harsh.

You really went back 10 pages? Post 657 on page 33, 10 back from 43, shows all the construction photos.

Unless you have your forum settings to show more posts per page.

This pic just shows one part of the foundation and if you see previous videos and pics you will see that the foundation is HUGE !!

The company is being quite secretive about the start of work but we still have got regular pic updates so the pace of work seems is pretty good.

Anyways its just the foundation and will only be interesting when we see the 3 cores rising and then we will have much move pictorial updates

I understand people's frustration but foundation work is anyways boring !!

The problem is not the amount of photos or documents, but the amount of off-topic posts. The frequency of photos is same as Pentominium without Imre.

There are several documents of suppliers and job listings. The plant was obtained. But everything is lost by off-topics posts, prejudice and sloth.

Sad but true. The off-topic nonsense in this thread is worse than the Ryungong (sp?) Hotel and Abraj Al-Bait threads combined. Supertalls in India seems to be a really touchy subject for people on this forum.

Do the pictures and video show the whole site?
The area shown looks rather small for a 700m tower with 3 cores. Maybe it's just the angle.
No fair, we don't have a supertall, now you guys get one?

I thought you were gone for good from this thread. My bad for thinking "outta here" was just temporary.

:P

Anyway, you do spring up whenever anyone poses a doubt about this building actually coming up as depicted in the latest image. Its okay to be skeptical, but you seem to be fanatically skeptical about this project to the extent that if this is actually scaled down, (like a 40 storey hotel as you said) you'd be seen jumping around with joy.

This is proof of RobertWalpole making the same statement about India over and over again.

Or may be he is not been able to digest the fact that India is building a supertall.

More like the proof of the arrival of unrestrained global capitalism in India.
