This building wont start rising for at least a year or two, no? Foundations must be huge and a huge core which like so many other projects must take a long time.

I am looking forward to seeing the progress of this tower in 2015. Should be off the ground and moving fast by then.

What makes you think so? Civil Engineering has gone beyond merely digging and pouring concretes. As long as the money keeps coming it will be done on time.

if the latest news are right, it will rise this year.
of course the foundations will be big, but with enough machinery it won't take 2 years to build it. not even 1 year to be correct.

Jesus... I really need to lose my fear of heights. I want to move into the 195th floor of that building. What a crazy view that would be from just outside your bedroom.

Thank you Rody, You are my new favorite member on this thread. I'm sure Myself and many others are very grateful that you were able to access the site and get some nice footage. Got anything planned for the next 5 years

Once again, thank you for your pictures and video and hopefully you are able to update us many times in the future.

I am not talking about money. I am saying that I cant wait to see it get a bit of height which will take a while, because they have to get the site ready and then start on the core. I presume that will take at least a year. I could be wrong.

Hopefully I will be able to snap a couple more pictures

So if this is under construction, when will a mod put it into the supertall forum?
