The only thing finding the shipwreck will do is slow down construction further while they do the excavation work to dig it up. Archeological excavations always take forever so they don't damage anything, I'm sure this one will be no exception.

Yes that's true.
I think Pablobegood meant the position on a normal map (with north on top), of course for most forumers the view from the HD Cam is the reference ;-)

Fortunately it wasn't found anywhere else on the site, they have to wait for the "Deutsche Bank Building" anyway until they can finish the VSC.

At least with this position it will not delay the construction of the towers 2, 3 and 4.

Are they holding a break on Tower 4, or are there more problems at the site?
I've read that the construction will resume in early august.

The only break involves steel erection. Work is focused on the first and second floors right now. Lots of concrete poured. The south side is nearly done. The west side columns are being reinforced with concrete right now. You can see the blue formworks in the picture above.

I work right by here, there's actually a ton of construction going on -- mainly concrete work for the core, etc. I would imagine it will start rising within the next month or so.
