Jean Nouvel is still in business and his atelier is ready to design the next great supertall. Just dial [+33] 1 49 23 83 83. Operators are standing by.

Please don't take the bait, guys. This banking regulations argument belongs even less in this thread than it does in the WTC threads (which is to say, less than none).

As of yesterday, they are pilling. Then excavation can begin.

If piling has begun then this can move into the "under construction" thread!

Can I just ask why would they start piling for them to then dig up that same ground? How does it work?

Not sure what method is used here, but in my country they use an insert on top of a pile to get it down deep below ground level.
When piling is done, they simply excavate down to the top of the piles.

A LOT of projects in the area pile first, since they are digging out a hole and then filling it with concrete. They are not actually pounding something into the ground, unlike other places with loose, soft soil. Supposedly it is easier to start digging if they are on undisturbed ground than to dig down and start drilling directly into the bedrock.

It's a lot cheaper and easier to get those big piling machines onto surface grade dirt and to dig a deeper hole than it is to get the piling machines four grades down into the pit and back up again.

4 grades down is no problem with a ramp, but there is no room for that here.

A high-end Ferndale hotel is rising in the "gap".

I think there are different rules. Here's it's typically rebar sighting. For them it's caisson drilling. It'll be moved soon enough, since the latter happened.
