^^I'm guessing Essex before 1000 S Michigan. Case was awarded the caissons on Essex and will start in early March. Not sure about start date for WPE.

1000 S. Michigan still needs to market condos. If it happens, that project is at least one year out.


More equipment being delivered, another crane. There's no rebar yet or anything, but that's a matter of time.

To me. the project appears to moving out of the site prep stage.

For forum purposes, what needs to be happening for the project to be moved from "highrise proposal" to "highrise construction"?

that switch gets flipped as soon as one of the caisson rigs tastes its first bite of earth.

but now that the Case rigs are physically on site and being assembled, that formality is just a matter of days away (probably someday next week).

it's ok to now think of this project as "under construction", we're just construction nerds here at SSP who are sticklers for the official rules.

a valid argument could also be made that a project is "under construction" from the moment its construction loan closes, because once that's achieved, the rest is a forgone conclusion.

Thanks for the clarification on the SSP rules.

Would I be correct in thinking that Vista Tower and 1200 S Indiana should be topping out at about the same time if things go to schedule?

I would expect 1200 S Indiana to top of first way earlier, the first 20 floors or so on Vista are gonna take a long as hell time to complete due to the size of the site. I could be wrong, but Vista shouldn't even be topped off until mid-late 2018

^ You're probably right, but likely not by a long shot - 1200 South has a large number of (rather large) podium/parking floors.....

Definitely Essex prior to 1000 South.....my question is will Essex beat 1326 South to the punch? Do you know if Case also has that foundation job (Walsh is the GC)?

Good question, Essex has 2 months of garage demo to finish before drilling can start. 1326 does not have the same constraint though last I heard a couple months ago they were over budget. Essex is on budget, loan closed, just awaiting moratorium to be completed next week to get moving.

I'm not familiar with the mechanical rentals. How much equipment does Case have? I imagine those rigs being way to valubale to just sit in a warehouse if the market is this hot. If they have a surge of say 5 major projects going on with 3 rigs a piece to do they bring in out of state machines or do they strictley schedule their machines from building to building. I know this has been discussed before but it just baffles me that Case is everywhere all the time.

Case doesn't have the capacity to start construction on two foundations at once?

Update from today:







Looked to me like they were getting a second mobile crane set up and all the other prep that one could imagine was done, so this one should be underway and officially started next week!

Bonus picture(didn't have my good camera on me so the picture isn't as good for this view, but will be better next time!)



This will be an awesome view for when it actually starts to rise next year!

By the way...

Floors 77, 78, 79, and 80 are mechanical.

Floor 76 is the highest residential level.

I never posted this, but I have a source that's offered a slightly different height to the one we have.

892'-7"

I will try to get additional confirmation of which height is correct.

Happy New Year Chicago and to all formers. This will be the tallest construction start of 2017 for the city.

Woohoo, construction thread!
The prominence of this site should mean some great photography and frequent updates. There's just a lot more traffic here than there is at Vista.
