Construction officially started on the 17th of December (2 days ago), the site has been prepped since a couple of years already (the whole site was prepped when the first building of the complex -the mid-rise on the first photo of post #4- was built) and the offices are already rented out. I think that it's safe to say that it is way beyond "proposed highrises"Judging from the photos they haven't even started prep works yet. I'll move this thread for now.
So unless you can provide pictures of the actual tower plot that is U/C (or point it out in the pictures above), I will not move it. It's about the tower, not the mall or whatever is included in the project. I have to repeat this over and over again. We want these forums to remain factual and objective. There have been too many examples of projects where we have been watching the construction of a 3 story mall and the tower started 5 years later or never started because of financial problems.Basically it goes in this order:
Pre-planning = Project is still in the design and consultation phase
Pro = Project has been submitted for planning permission
App = Project has been approved
Demo = Demolition underway on site
Prep = Site clearance/excavation/piling/foundations
U/C = Core and superstructure rising
T/O = Topped out, the tower has reached its maximum height
Com = Internally and externally complete.
