Is it just me or do Chicago skyscrapers seem to generally go up way faster than others?

I remember the ground works and pilings and foundation pouring was done very very quickly on 113 E Roosevelt.

It depends on the complexity of the project along with having favorable weather. Also, most parking for the towers in Chicago is above ground, so that may to be a factor.

Was walking around cheering my dad on in the Marathon and thought I'd post these few photos I took.

Rose a floor it looks like, from the last update.

Taken today







Hope these are good angles.
