Yes. According to bauer there will be a total of 270 piles deep up to 110m deep and with width of 1.5 and 1.8m. But most of them won't reach 110m.

By harnessing the power of Google, I have ascertained the answer. It's the Landmark Tower in Abu Dhabi, designed by Cesar Pelli: http://pcparch.com/project/the-landmark

Im sorry I can not give you an exact number as I forgot to ask

However, I have asked about another points that always stuck up my head. such as:

Q: what is the width of the tower?
A: 100 m corner to corner.

Q:when other buildings are going to be under construction?
A:some big scale civil works are going to start in Q3 2014,some buildings will be under construction by the end of the year.
