If you don't like the people here, and the content then why are you still here

Thanks for the insight Mr. I just joined. My opinion stands. FILLER! This is nothing more than mediocrity with its own thread.

^ I don't think you're understanding what we're criticizing. We don't care if you think the building is filler. That's a perfectly legit opinion.

What makes no sense is why you're accusing us of gushing over this property like a bunch of fools. We're not. This is a thread to discuss a skyscraper under construction. This is Skyscraperpage.com

It's what we do. So your initial comment that triggered all of this was kind of a head scratcher.

New Job?

Very long vacation?

Sabbatical?

I took Randolph on my way to Grant Park. Can post photos later. They've got sheet piling on the perimeter and are digging down. A few feet so far.

That's some serious clay right there.

I'm back! Sorry for the very long hiatus - I took a couple of weeks vacation and was then completely overrun with work when I got back. Fortunately, not much happened at the site. They dug a big hole. I noticed today, though, that they appear to be poring concrete in it.

Welcome back, but inactivity is never "fortunate" in our eyes! I almost forgot how good of a vantage point you have. Does your office extend to the South to catch the upcoming 130 N Franklin action?

It does. I just posted a photo in the 130 thread which shows the view (or part of it).
