Most of that structure they are demolishing now is the old underground parking from what I heard. Can anyone confirm?

Either way, im interested in how this huge slab foundation for the new tower works. Will it be secured to bedrock or simply a floating block? its a football field in size and 20ft thick...i suppose simply the weight of that may make it secure.
