I always thought that the ramp in the second hole was only a temporary one which would be removed.
Is that not the case?

I'm surprised that they started to weld new steel without pouring on the first floor.

How do they make the steel walls stand on the ground?

So these are the holes for both towers? Because in the renders they don't look so close to each other.

No, second tower is across the street. The second hole here is for the mall.

If the second tower is in fact across the street then does it have it's own thread. It is in fact a supertall of its own at 1,007 feet. If this is a combined thread then how come I never see any updates of the second tower since the second hole is for the mall.

No, it doesn't have it's own thread - this is a combined thread (look at the thread title).
There are no updates because it's not U/C yet.

^Probably not. There's no need for a big raft slab like for the main tower foundation.

Hi all.

1 - There are 5 lower levels that can be seen in the steel.
2 - There are 4 lower levels in the podium and concrete rings.
3 - There are some areas inside the hole made of concrete, that look like they will be level B4 but not covering the entire area of the hole.

These last steel bits have beams in them for the ground level and level B1. Just below them, the beams for level B2 are hidden right now but all of these beams line up with the podium levels and the concrete rings.

The beams in the steel for levels B3 and B4 don't seem to line up with neither the concrete ring of podium level B3 or number 3 above.

My point is, it looks like the lowest levels for the main structure won't line up with the lowest levels of the podium. Not that that would be abnormal though - just an observation.


Ray.
