How much excavation is necessary on this plot? Will it be as deep as 220 Central Park?

Sagrada Familia?

And actually if we are going to be technical about it...

The Great Wall of China was under construction for about 2000 years. I think that takes the cake.

Well, this one isn't built yet, so we don't know.
It could take more than 2000 years, though admittedly, I'm hoping it wont take that long.

It's got only a few straight walls so it wouldn't go up that fast, but still, the floors are also quite small.
