Maybe this hit them hard financially? Since it was on hold, I'm guessing they found enough money to start building again but no money spare for stuff like this happening. Would they be able to claim insurance or anything for it? Or was it there fault?

Or maybe there waiting for steel or materials to fix the wall?

Not yet. We have active forumers living nearby that can even see the site from their windows, so they'll certanly report if that's to happen.

If they literally have no money left, I wonder how the city would force or encourage them to dewater that hole. I'd think it's the developer's responsibility but if they leave town, who gets stuck footing the cleanup of this? I'd imagine it affecting the towers nearby in some way.

Of course hopefully the developer is just having trouble but can restart the project eventually.

Maybe they are adding on to the marina. HAHAHA! Maybe they should drain the water and put in a little park or mini cafe.

It's not a money problem, it's a technical one. The contractor filled the site with water to avoid a collapse of the Marina wall as it happened in 2007 on Infinity's site next door.

The water will stay in until they'll re-enforce the marina wall and the strip between the site and the water edge.
