Why add the podium when this looks just perfect



Although maybe the designers want to tackle wind problems with bottom heavy structure and to add floor area and etc...

I'm certainly not changing this to under construction anytime soon. When all the water has been drained, and there are piling rigs, etc on site then I will change. For now I will change to "Prep" which means preparation of the site, cleaning, etc. Expect this tower to be at that stage for quite a while

This tower is part of a zone called Songdo Landmark City Project. The land for this area is yet to be reclaimed, however the towers construction will be facilitated by the building of sea walls around its immediate construction area.

The architectural design process is complete (except for minor details/interior).

All soil testing is complete.

All governmental approval processes are complete.

The sea walls that will allow construction of the tower are due to themselves be constructed in late September/early October and it is anticipated that these walls will take up to 3 months to complete.

The bottom line as far as 'under construction' goes is that the date for the first pylons is Jan 2009.

If I get time this weekend I'll post some pics and personal thoughts on the Incheon FEZ project in the Korea section as a follow up to this post.

PS: anticipated completion date 2013.
Please see my previous post on this. I'd expect that UC status may be ok circ. Jan 2009. I will contact someone within the IFEZ around this date to absolutely clarify that actual contruction is underway, then clarify the situation on this board.

I'm quite pleased this project is at least getting underway in some respect and really looking forward to when some more tangible progress is in place to refer to. Obviously those looking to invest in the Songdo area are also quite keen to see the most iconic building of the Songdo project take shape and emerge as it is going to have quite an impact on the identity of the IFEZ zone as a whole.

16 months minimum, piling takes a long time, and having to create the land first will take longer. Remember the Spire has been underconstruction for over a year now, this one has yet to begin!

A great looking super tall. It seems building supercities with super talls has become a trend now a days. What city or country will be next.
