O, c'mmon it will reach on street level much sooner. Now when foundations are built, they will reach street level very fast, I'm sure into that.

The same for 3WTC.

Beside there's only 5-6 floors underground, and they are already on 2nd one. And that they would build those 4 floors for 6-12 months (i don't think so)

In fact I earn about 400€ a month. And that's really not much. But I guess it's OK considering I make wooden chairs and tables as my job. I'm just glad I earn something. So many people unemployed these days.

It has to do with in wich country you are living I suppose. And the average earnings. If you can support yourself, have a nice home, maybe it will be sufficient. I am aware of the fact there a people on this forum coming from all over the world who might not have the income that are normal in other countries. So, if I offended anyone, please accept my apoligy.

LOL, you didn't offend me There's nothing offensive on earning few And so far it is enough for me. After all, I'm just 21. Though I'd like to earn more to have my own living. Right now I live at my mother's flat with my wife and my son.

Is anyone on this forum familiar with the term piling?

Or for that matter, does piling mean installation of a concrete foundation or does it refer to the building of floors below ground level?

Pilings are the supports (foundation) of a structure. They are below the lowest floor of the building. Actually these buildings have very minimal pilings 'cause the bedrock is very solid and it just below the lowest floor. Buildings built in the desert such as in Dubai require massive pilings because the sand provides minimal support.

You're 21 but are already married and have a son? OMG, that's way too soon, I think.

If they continue with this pace and the weather allows them to build as fast as they do now for the rest of the year, they will be on street level even before NYE i think. The year has six months left and they need to construct 4 underground floors afaik. So 1,5 months per floor, thats doable imo.

It is. Unfortunately, the thorn condom which brought me into all of this, disagrees.

Btw, what will be inside the lowrise back section of 2WTC? Will there be retail floors in there?
