Already building a crane? Then there should be some foundations there already. This one may be U/C already.

March 28

The climbing form climbs






IIRC Chicago requires that all new buildings be able to retain 3" of rainfall on premise.


These shots are from March 7th, the blue tanks must be on the other side of the wall connected by the black pipes to the concrete vaults.

Optima topping out in the background.

More of the mysterious blue things - tanks to let the rainwater soak into the ground ?


Flying forms - these will be lifted intact from floor to floor.

Just in time re-bar, they were finishing up the left side as the concrete was pored in the loer right.







Mount points for post stress floors ?

Not practical from a cost perspective, Lake Michigan provides virtually free water.

May 2

The no fun fencing - the corner on the right is where I leaned to do pano shots for the last year or so. The sidewalk here will probably be used for building the rebar cages and staging supplies as the floorplates cut off access to the lower level.









435 N Park - a few more shots

It's a great looking building and a nice addition to the skyline. Can't wait to see the finished product! I also got a chuckle out of the Star Trek insignial!!! LOL
