Retro, you're a real workhorse. Thanks for these updates.

I work for the future anchor tenant of this building, Kirkland & Ellis, and would like to share some information I received:

Builders continue to work on pouring the concrete core of the building. It takes about 1 week to pour a floor and 15 floors have been completed so far.

-The anticipated completion date of this phase is first quarter of 2008.

-The installation of steel will begin in late June/early July.

-The installation of the curtain wall is scheduled to begin in September.

Photo of the curtain wall:

This buiding's going to be amazing, in a restrained sort of way. I am at once excited for Chicago and extremely jealous.

Reinsdorf Sucks,
The rakers ("pipes") are restraining the ground from settling into the excavation. Until the forces are transferred to the building, the rakers need to remain. You can see that the floor slabs do not yet extend to the perimeter of the foundation, so until that happens, no loads have been transferred to the building. It appears that the formwork for the lower portion of the foundation wall is in place, for the wall to be installed up to the bottom of the horizontal steel beam (called a "waler") that is attached to the corrugated steel sheeting, which is above the missing portion of the lowest floor slab. With that part of the wall in place, the floor framing can be installed at the wall, and once the concrete on the metal deck gains its strength, the wall can be backfilled and the lowest level of walers and rakers can be removed. Repeat the process until you reach the street level, and: no more pipes.

Thanks, it just didn't seem like they would be able to take them out. Across the river, the Waterview Tower pipes were taken out before they made the floors I believe. But I dont really know.
