Interesting question. I haven't been to the site, but I don't see why they can't remove a section of concrete from the plaza and test the soil there. Obviously, complete testing will require demolition.

They may be testing the soil conditions underneath the plaza because they plan to put their demolition crane there.

^ Yeah the whole site isnt taken up by the existing structure so they are doing the soil testing on the North half of the site where the large plaza is.

Condo tower planned for St. James site scrapped
REAL ESTATE | Building would have housed high-end spa, hotel

March 29, 2008Recommend

BY DAVID ROEDER Business Reporter/droede[email protected]

A planned condominium and hotel high-rise in Streeterville promised to cater to the wellness needs of the wealthy, but it couldn't withstand the virus in the real estate market.

Developer Related Midwest said Friday it has scrapped plans to build the 67-story building at 65 E. Huron. With condos and for-sale hotel rooms plus a high-end Canyon Ranch spa, the building would have replaced offices owned by the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago.........

That's crazy... especially since there was so much marketing for it. But who really needs a high-class, holistic, medical spa disguised as a 'lifestyle' building. Those ads made me laugh with their "I'd Live There" ads featuring fashionable, urbanites with arms full of groceries, pdas, puppies and yoga mats!

I think these were just priced way too high. I think they were just about the same as the Spire.
