Can anyone tell me what that huge hole is for, the one with the green rebar.
Ill like to take a ride in that porta, all the way to the top when the towers done, it will also add about 7 feet to the builds over all height as a plus.

It's not polluted, it's just some harmless dye that will wear out later on.

The Chicago River is indeed polluted, but not really from the green dye.

I wasnt for real. Better then the Detroit river for sure. Imagine how polluted the rivers must of been in the late 1800's and early 1900's when their wernt sewers.

It should be a very interesting show, even though it really is only the foundations. I'd like to see a show done for when the tower is completed though.
