All the projects are going very well. Even that the progress of some of them isn't big but it's still a little progress. As always nice diagram Culwulla.

Excellent work as usual CULWULLA!

One nit. The foundation piles for the Chicago Spire are as deep as the height of the atrium/entrance, several have already been set. It would nice to see the true depth of foundations in comparison to the total height

And what's the need to depict all unbuilt floors on the drawing? I don't see floors on the other drawings for the other towers.
It is better to depict the floors on the Chicago Spire picture only when they a built, not now.

CULLWULLA, wow thanks for updating the Spire so fast!

It's so nice to see the "hidden story" underground for these supertalls. In the case of the Spire it not only has very deep pilings to support the enormous weight of the buildling but it also has a massive underground garage. See this plan:

Chicago Spire foundation plan

There are 34 main piles each 12 feet in diameter and about 120 feet deep and cut into the bedrock.

Understandable, we don't even know what it's going to look like just yet.

at the rate that it's going, i guess Guangzho tower could get the title of tallest completed free-standing structure for a while--at least until Burj Dubai tops-off
