I suppose watching the progress with Trump should have gotten me used to the scale of this sort of project, but those caissons are just massive. ... really big.

I wish they were making a documentary on such a beautiful tower. That would be fantastic. BTW is there anywhere in this forum to post videos of construction and engineering?
