Seems more like an archaeological dig than tower construction.

From looking at the work - it is the archelogical aspect ;-) That 12'+ trench around the South and East perimeter is criss-crossed by more than one utility run, the nasty liquid filled ones - most likely in vintage cast iron.

Last I checked they were making good progress on excavating out the area for the mat, note 110 N Wacker did little to no excavation.

Understood and that makes sense. Thanks for the info

3-4 months is not slow at all, especially considering how large this project is.

Global pandemic? Sure work is still commencing but I have to assume they're working with a limited crew at the very least.

Nubs for tieing into the mat - not extender/couplers like at One Chicago.

Perhaps. I'm more disappointed by the blank wall at street-level along Clinton.

From the webcam looks like the crane is going through the middle of the building. I imagine the mat pour in about two weeks?

CrazyCres May 26, 2020 10:30 PM

More like next week for a mat pour

builder8 May 27, 2020 11:45 AM
