People should quit moanin' about small discrepancies or create their own pics. Jeez!
dont feel bad cus a few people dont appreciate the hard work you do. others think its great that they get to see a closer comparison of how tall the building really will be. but, people like me, just don't bother commenting on the picture

Pulls the caisson liner free so it can be pulled out with a crane.

And why should have be pulled out?
What function did the piling have? To explore the ground conditions?

Because, the caisson liner that you see in the photo is just a temporary liner.

After they start drilling a caisson, they put the temporary liner into position, then they continue to drill until they are deep enough to put the permanent "rock can" into position. The rock can is the long tube that you've seen in past photos.

After the rebar cage is positioned and the hole filled with concrete, the temporary liner is pulled and used on other holes.

It's a stunning building for sure. I wish it was going up at Bloor and Yonge in Toronto

Are the prospects for it actually being built (1) poor, (2) fair, (3) good, (4) excellent, (5) rock-solid guaranteed?

And the guys whom work in construction have a thing about their pickup trucks, too!

Anyways, my thoughts on that are more towards maneuvering that thing down downtown Chicago streets to the job site.

Why didn't they just dig everything out and then start all the construction?
Isn't it much more difficult to dig around all those concrete caissions, as just digging a big hole??

I hope I can help you with this picture, it's not 100% the same as the one you posted, but it'll do nicely I guess.
I like it!
