@bertiboy

Amazing rendering you have there. It looks elegant and soaring. What a great addition to Chicago. I cant wait to take a trip there in a few years. I usually make it often seeming Im within like 3 hours of the city.

I got this information about a month ago from someone I know at the site.

The core should be up to grade around the end of November. The perimeter should be up to Wacker around June 07.

completion is scheduled for 2009

the site is very compact, and they can only get so much equipment there.

i contacted my source, and this is what I was told:

Overall footprint: ~23,000sf
Core footprint: ~4,100sf


What's funny is that you guys are saying how small the footprint is for this building, well the footprint for the Spire (400 North Lake Shore Drive) is smaller at 14,000 sq feet.
