Web Cam

Hey Guys, Does anyone know if they are going to put up a web cam so we non-Chicagoans can watch the progress?
Thanks
Lance

They already said it won't, and that it can be easily worked around.

From today
















They were putting the circular rebar between the wood formwork and the sheet pile wall



Cutting some pipe



Getting ready to pour the concrete, which will go between the wood formwork and sheet pile wall



Pouring the concrete






Another cement truck arrives



Yep, it's Prarie


Getting ready to drill the next caisson where the orange X is. Just outside the pic to the right, the existing caisson was marked with the number 35. On the ground next to the orange X seen in this pic, it said 36. Before I left, the caisson drill was mounted and the orange X was increased in size by putting a wooden pallett over the X and orange spray paint was sprayed over the pallet, the ground that was exposed was marked with orange. I am guessing they did this so that caisson marker more closely matched the size of the caisson drill bit?


















Here you can watch them put the circular rebar into the core






Concrete being poured into the core

Neighbors hit Spire with lawsuit
By Thomas A. Corfman


The developer of the Spire misrepresented the scope of the project during negotiations to obtain a now-contested agreement to build under land adjacent to a condominium complex, according to a fraud complaint filed Wednesday by the River View Condominium Assn. in Cook County Circuit Court.
Sounds like a fair dispute. Misrepresentation and cheating happens a lot in the business world and what they're trying to do with a 7 storey underground parking garage is ludicrous. Poor neighbours. I would hate to be in their shoes.
