Of course pics will come. I'm really interested to see at which stage they are at the moment.
Pilling is done since 21st November when i remember right. that's arround 2 months now.
The big question is: did they pour the raft foundation already?

Isn't it at least 150m for a skyscraper, 300m for a supertall and 600m for a megatall? So the next step would be 1200m.

The next should be 1000m.

600-300=300
1000-600=400
1500-1000=500

That's make sense

Ok, let me show what i think.

People really want to see first 1+ km tower, and just tired of the intermediate steps between Supertall (300 m) and Hypertall (1000 m). And nobody care if somewhere will be build 950m tower, everybody gonna be angry cuz of it's another nonkilometer tower

BUT. There is such big step between these two (between 300m and 1000m).
So, we need to put a new category between two these, ok, lets call it Megatall.

300m- Boringtall

300m+ Supertall

600m+ Megatall

1000m+ Hypertall

Keep in mind that the more time passes until we receive another update, the more progress we will see.

i was hoping that for the two broad supertalls as well, but my hopes didn't last too long to turn into doubts for this project however i still think everything is well underway even without seeing it.

This forum feels like panning for gold. Lots of useless stuff to wade through to find the few nuggets of gold. 14 pages of great info plus 330 pages of useless chatter and childish soap operas. I am passionate about the construction process and information, not endless bickering and chatter about nothing. We might only have a raft foundation at this point and we have 344 pages. Let me propose a novel idea. Why don't we start a forum that is just about the construction of this beautiful project and nothing else.
