BVictor1's first picture really puts into perspective the size of the hole/core. I didn't really think it was that big until I saw the people standing next to it. Great Update!

HAHA if you work on the neigbuhring building on one of the windows, ore even live there, you might be pissed of, because you will never have daylight again when this beauty starts to rise.

Foundation work is always slow for skyscrapers here in Chicago. Trump Towers foundation work was at least a year. Remember Chicago used to be a massive swamp; our soil sucks thats why we must drill several huge cassions to bedrock to support our structures. THis summer I expect to see some nice progress with this one.

"Remember Chicago used to be a massive swamp." Now that's the problem.

It amazes me that those buildings just west of the Waterview are that old - and yet they still fit right in in today's Wacker Dr.

Nice pics guys, thanks alot for posting them.
It's crazy how the older structures blend with the newer towers...
Chicago really is an amazing place architecturally.
