I agree about the amount of progress so far, but on the other hand, this excavation is going to be a monster, in the scope of the WTC "bathtub" in area and depth, and may take as long as (from now) 6 to 8 months, before completion of excavation, and the start of actual foundation work.....

and don't forget that the ground is frozen solid, it is more difficult to excavate during the winter months than summer.

thanks

The slurry or diaphragm wall will be 70 Meters (!)

86 Feet (Chicago Spire) is impressive enough - 70 Meters will be a mining operation.

Comrade windstride was able to infiltrate the construction site and got some insider information.
He brings some bad news. They are changing the project of the foundation and because of this, start of construction of the slurry wall was moved to june 2008 .
