Great set Harry. That last shot really illustrates how much open space the site will still have.

If I understand correctly, WPS is being measured from the Riverwalk while WPE from street level which is a 22' difference apparently. WPS is 835' from Riverwalk and 813' from street level, so if you compare their tops it is WPS at 813' vs WPE at 665' (cbtuh has 668'). WPS is (sadly) shorter than 110 Wacker on the skyline.

https://www.chicagoarchitecture.org/...ed-back-again/ shows diagrams and the first render is pretty accurate, and if anything shows WPS a little taller in the render given a tiny bit of perspective effect.

Was out shooting 110 on Saturday with the lifted bridges & passing boats (great success), then walked over to Salesforce.

May be a few days before I get through the edits, but here's a screengrab of what I'm working on. Great height for shooting over the fence right now!

^ Very niiice, Nick. OT but I drove past 110 on Saturday evening and it was looking gorgeous. The Riverwalk portion appears to be complete.

Just wait- six months from now: OC, 320 S Canal, WPS, and 300N Michigan will all have cranes puncturing the skyline

And it's not too crazy to think that Site I, 400N LSD and Tribune Tower East could all break ground in 2021.

Lending rates are stupendously low and there's reasons to believe infrastructure stimulus is a real possibility, too.

Holy crap, you may be onto something.

That'd literally be insane, don't wanna be overly optimistic but it is a real possibility.

Add 301 & 321 South Wacker to that list (potentially). Not sure about NEMA II but maybe that also.

Finally had some time to watch the magic yesterday. This is truly a 'site' to behold:





The transition from cast in place concrete beams to steel is apparent here in the photos above and below, with the transition to steel brackets for what will be Level 1.










^Channeling my inner HarryC here, with a unique angle. For scale, the cable on the hook is about 1.5" in diameter.

Based on what I could see when I walked up there on Friday, looks like that mound of dirt that they are driving the mixer trucks and concrete pump on will have to be taken out of there because that area is needed for the lower level of the building.

How will they get stuff to the site without that opening that's under WPE?

I'm guessing they will leave out part of the podium for crane picks and so forth so they can continue to use the access road from Lower Orleans. In fact they may only build the parts of the podium needed to support the tower above.

^ Good guess. That would definitely need to stay open for the duration of construction.

If they end up using only the tunnel for logistics, it'll be quite the feat of engineering that they squeezed this entire tower through a 20' wide hole in the parking garage!

Personally, I'd love to see some steel arrive via barge...

well, if you think about it, almost every skyscraper on the planet was constructed by utilizing 12' wide maximum trucking... (and 15'+- height)
