Still very excited fro this tower. It will be an amazing addition to the ever so expanding Chicago skyline!

Also, from the angle of the photo Vista is closer to the observer than Aon.

That above render gives a good sense of the impact of these new towers, but none of them will be quite that prominent. The two South Loop towers in particular wont be very noticeable from that angle. Its still a good visual though.

Does Chicago have the same luck that Manhattan has, bedrock close to the surface?

Because this tower seems to progress very quickly. I have expected foundation work to take much more time for a tower of this size.

Nope. What it does have is way more space for materials delivery and staging.
