The Limketkai Group is now preparing to begin the construction of their second high rise building beside Limketkai Hotel.
Latest update onsite revealed they have already fenced the parking lot across McDonald’s and constructed what is now a new temporary encampment for workers and field engineers. A new gate was also established shown above just beside the huge billboard of the project.
A news release last year state that this building will be 33 storeys high and named it The Gateway Tower. Read press release HERE. As reflected in the billboard, this will be another hotel with a pool deck on the 3rd floor.
In my opinion and considering the height of the building, the first activity which is excavation works for the foundation will take at least 3-4 months and concreting works of foundation which will take another couple of months. Vertical construction will probably be made as early as April 2012 or by May-June 2012. Foundation works of adjacent Limketkai Hotel also took some months before vertical construction began. The building’s foundation is its main support and holds the key to the building’s stability.
