I think its ' the nicest skyscraper under construction now
I don't know how the choice between proposals is made at Chicago, but they pay real attention, not only to the architectural quality and innovation but how the tower fits into the skyline.

I think that's wrong. I heard I think 7 levels of underground parking under the building.

There is some discussion and a couple of photos of it in the 'Spire' thread in the North America/Chicago sub-forvm.

Hollie Maea is right, although originally there was going to be a separate parking structure, for many reasons it has all been placed in an underground structure beneath the site. So yes, there will be some digging.

Here's to the old "no hands" technique. That pizza's on stilts so you can just bury your face in it.

Excellent.

Looks like they are pouring the concrete for the first test caisson. I was down there earlier, but couldn't hang too long.

Two questions:

Is Lakeshore Drive double-decked where Chicago Spire is being built?

Is any construction taking place on the other side of Lakeshore Drive from where Chicago Spire is being built?

Yes it is double-decked.

The other side of LSD will be DuSable Park.
