One thing that hits you when you are there is the smell. The musty smell of broken wood, concrete and steel.

I wonder if they are going to have two excavations going at once with the alley like a narrow land bridge between.

Thanks for the update.

Based on previous photos taken from ground level, I was uncertain whether the pit was being dug to accommodate both residential towers. But your photo makes clear that a second pit must be dug before the shorter tower can be built.
