Actually they are still doing the site perimeter wall but what is more interesting is that with every news release these towers grow bigger and bigger. First they said 400m+, then they said 101 floors, then a few days ago they were quoted to be more then 500 meters tall.

It's crazy but if true it might explain why the lazy job by the piling contractor.

If really 100 floors with a huge roof feature and a long spire on top, they can very well be.
