Rody69 some information about the progress (like how many piles have been installed etc) would be very welcomed.

I can see some cables - test pile perhaps?

I can also see the label BP2 171. But you have to enlighten us what that means. First I thought about the depth but it can't be it since the deepest piles for kt have 110m.

Also big thanks for the awesome update. As you reported we suspected the core will be first to be "served" with piles

I was told that this pile is the deepest one, so you can imagine how it's in the spot. but definitely the number 171 doesn't represent the depth of this pile. (or does it?)

that's a good number already i would say. In total there will be 270 when i remember right or?


btw: i believe nobody can say anymore that this tower is not U/C, there's less activity or slow progress.
This project is alive, more than it looks

So True ZZ-II, Our SSC Family Friend and Moderator, I second Thanks to Rody69, Our only SSC Photo Updater, who can Get into the Gate on the Site for so many Pictures and Videos of this Great 1007 Meter Tower, might be a slow start now of 90 Pilings in Now, but with 180 More to go, I see the foundation completed by early, Next year, with the first floor being poured by Summer, 2014, and going Vertical by the end of 2014, with about 62 months Later of Rising to over 3,000 Feet, 167 Foors, and a Spire on top topping Out IMO in 2020, and opened still in 2021, my opinion
