Exactly. It's very simple really. Rule is this: to move thread to u/c any structural part of the building must be u/c meaning that as soon as any of these "couple of trucks in vague desert-like area" start to drill this thread moves to u/c section. And that is soon

One of the three wings (I love 3 winged structures) will have no setbacks for a kilometer. That will make it look huge and amazing since the design works so well with this height.

If the foundations start soon I expect it to come out of the hole in a year.

Wow, I'll be so excited if this gets built.. hope this thing on the side is an observation deck and not some silly pool, it really disturbs the beauty of this tower..

To me it looks like a helipad, but IDK.

Probably not a helipad, considering how winds act around buildings like this. Landing a helicopter there without crashing into the spire a few metres away would require a very skilled pilot.

Even the architect himself have said it's not a helipad.

It was going to be a helipad, but they decided it wasn't feasible, which lead them to make it a observation deck.

So they are driving pilings but lack of current updates means we don't know if this moves or not?
