I always lust after their sturdy tripods, until I see them hauling the things around.


Seems like a lot of space on the edges (same on the other side). Expecting only compression on the sides ?

A crane is born. . .

Mudding in preparation for putting down the sleepers.


after the dance circle ?


Weaving the sleepers into the piles.


You can spot the boy scout - always has a roll of duct tape.




All together now ....

the landscaping looks like it will make for some fun snowboarding /sledding!

those models are awesome harry

maru2501 Oct 22, 2019 4:34 PM

the one is taller than I was expecting for some reason

AMWChicago Oct 22, 2019 5:36 PM

Honestly, those models make it look much more pleasing than previous renders that didn't really impress. This might low key grow on me, and might be a solid build in this cycle.

Where's the model of LSE's big boy?

So the pool/amenity deck is going to be below LSD?

I think it's slightly above - bad angle

No - better than 1/2 day of sun each day that there is sun.
A pool for morning people !

That's my point. In Chicago, you want pools on the south side of the building. I understand that in this case, it might not be possible, or if it were, then any sun would get blocked by adjacent buildings.

Basically, suboptimal pool-enjoying location.

I guess this one won't start construction then until they figure out this pool placement mess. I mean I have my doubts.

Gotta halt construction and go back to the drawing board.

Sorry guys, I gotta do this;

:banana::awesome::pepper::dancinghotdog:
:fireworks::rock::ohyeah::righton::banaride::thrasher::djparty:

I've watched hundreds, literally hundreds of highrises get built in this town. I remember a time when the IBM building lorded over the whole main branch and the Sun Times building wasn't even threatened yet. I also remember a time when there were fewer than 3 tower cranes in the whole city. But what I cannot recall ever seeing is a single construction site with 3 tower cranes in Chicago. Veterans, when was the last time?

I'd like to know as well.


Celebration is absolutely justified :cheers::cheers::cheers:

LOOK AT HOW ADORABLE THAT BABY CRANE IS.
I imagine it will be the first to get disassembled after a few months? If they were ever going to bump it up, they might as well have started taller off the bat.

Cannot wait to take some time lapses of this site with all three luffing jib cranes cooperating and moving around each other.

Time is money on this one, apparently.

simon07 Oct 29, 2019 3:23 AM

Are they building the garage stump for the third tower or is it going to be left as a dirt lot for the time being?
