I've always wondered how it is possible to build a skyscraper on that type of wet ground...

Looks like Godzilla has climbed and ruined the fašade of this tower with its claws.

Growing. I don't hope it will move.
This is definitely one of the best supertall projects around.

I agree with you, the renders look very futuristic.

Isn't the growing structure the annex of the building, and not the main tower itself?

That's why second photo is zoomed at the corner of the site when the actual tower is rising... downwards for the time being

Thanks all for the great pics! Can't wait to be home at the Ivy Sathorn during the whole of February 2013 and from my balcony there - overlooking the MahaNakhon site - I'll take pics of the works progress and upload on here
Very grateful others are doing that for me at the moment so I can follow the works while based in the UK, lol

PS: I hear the Conrad Hotel next door should be finished and up and running as of December 2012, and also hoping the former Russian Embassy complex should be done soon, running as a posh shopping mall with cafes and fountains etc. ....
This whole area of Bangkok will look so different in a couple of years time ...
Love it!

Not a fan of this design, really looks like the building is damaged or something from afar.
