That's quick, the foundations barely started. But rather sooner than later.

What's the purpose of the second level of roadway in the background? Is that going to be main access to the building?

There are actually three (3) levels and yes, this will be one of the entrances to the building, for the hotel and residential part. The roadway is being reconstructed and slightly extended and will include landscaping.

Also... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wacker_Drive


12/29/16














BTW... This building will have two tower cranes.

I would like to add mine to the chorus of voices praising this new trophy for Chicago.

I cannot wait until it's completed to see if it lives up to the renderings.

That is a base for an internal core climbing crane.

This is interesting. It means all such construction crane foundations are redundant in the final structure? Or do some cranes use the building foundations, or columns, as their means of support?
