Got it, that makes sense, didn't see the Curbed article until now; thanks all!

Pappageorge Haymes does do good work, as an AOR.

What is "grade" for this project? Is it ground level or street level?

Not unless 6 stories actually takes them more than a few feet below grade.

It does look like it would be tough to jam 6 levels between grade and the upper roadway level, but putting parking below water level seems unlikely, so today's reporting on "six levels of basement parking" is probably a crude approximation and should have no bearing on how soon the tower rises.

Podiums take a long time too, but even if I had to wait an extra year and sacrifice 80 feet of height, I would choose underground parking every time.

Does it matter that it's a river and not a lake? The Red Line goes underneath the river, after all.

Building next to the river shouldn't matter. There's groundwater everywhere. You need to build a concrete shell or 'bathtub' regardless.

If I am remembering correctly they dug down a level or two to construct the WPW parking garage. I assume they will do the same here.

In a sealed steel tube that was fabricated in South Chicago, barged in, and lowered into a trench.

Bulldozers are at work right now on the east parcel. They look to be knocking down / leveling a few concrete impediments that currently exist there.

I can see this site very clearly out my office window.

Edit: Oops - maybe this thread is just for the South site? I swear when I originally posted it said "South and East" - am I losing it?
