Move to Construction Forum Request Thread

If a proposal starts construction but goes unnoticed by the moderation team, feel free to post in here to request it be moved.

Site preparation or merely just digging the foundation doesn't count as contruction starting, since digging a hole is just that, digging a hole. And plus any construction taking place within a foundation that pertains only to the excavation doesn't count either, since that's not construction for the actual building itself.

  • Foundation work includes the implementation of permanent foundation components such as the drilling of caissons, etc.
  • Top down construction involving piling doesn't require a foundation to have been dug for a building to be considered under construction.


A tall building is considered to be ‘under construction’ when site clearing has been completed and foundation / piling work has begun.

One Rincon Hill Phase II (North Tower) is under construction. see link below for pics.

http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...=199764&page=4

also the height should read 541ft see below:

The zoning for rincon hill was 550' and 450' with additional allowances for mechanical and architectural features. Thus tower one is 641'. In the same light, tower two will be 450' + 91' = 541' This was confirmed way back in 2006 when J Church got his hands on the architectural drawings. Fflint verified this to be correct.

The Nicollet Residences Minneapolis thread needs to be changed to be called "The Nic on 5th", and to be 26 floors instead of 33. Not sure it would be officially considered under construction by the standards here, but as you can see from the pics in the thread...work is underway. Thanks

I didn't think you would say so by the standards here, but I gotta tell you, a lot of people would consider this under construction:



Just sayin'. I know there are cases where digging starts and then work stops, so I get it. Ps, the rendering has changed too, I put the new one on the last page of the thread. Thanks for making the changes.

Its not so much the digging then stopping, since actual building can start then stop, but when you think about it no part of the actual building is being constructed when a hole is being dug. It's not until they start to form the actual building that it is considered U/C.
