By the way, The Chicago Spire seems to complete an "empty place" between the Sears Towers and the John Hancock Center. Also, i can imagine a view from above, where the Spire close a Triangle of Skyscrapers, with the three towers mentioned as the vertex (that's the correct word?)

Cheers.
There are many more towers along they way that will make the Chicago skyline even more beastly. Trump, Waterview, and a couple others all pretty much over 1,000 feet. I'm anxious to see how Chicago will look like in 5-10 years.

ANYWAYS, this is going much faster than I would have ever thought, especially with all the snow and how cold it must be. Can't wait to see it pop out of that enormous hole.

From above


2007 series
2008 series





I think these are not short and long caisson tops, but 2 halves of a single top, note that the shorter ones have teeth, the longer ones appear to have ends that would connect to the top of the shorter.







Another shot of where the Slurry meets the Secant by the front gate.
