Man that area looks narrow for them to be putting that building there.

Optical illusion. You can measure the site area, using Google.

Remember this includes everything up to the railway embankment more or less, give or take set backs/separation from the building to the north.

It's actually quite a large footprint.

I thought the footprints of both phases were the same? At least that's what it appears like in the architectural plans.

The second tower is just rotated to align with the tight corridor it's being built in.

I believe they are...just not the same shape. :)

Photo credit @sammmy... is that a building footprint I spy?
You're on the money! That's exactly what that outline is:

Because this is a mainly core supported building, I presume they don't need to anchor that portion of the building in with a foundation.
