That was pretty damn crazy so I deleted it. If you would like to read the post read the quotes below.
no more getting out of line. Food for thought, when someone tries to cool thing down let it die.

I can be the bad guy if you want.

Real dude huh? is that why you're threatening me on a skyscraper forum?
I'm not sure if your grammar and English are just that bad or if it's you that's just trying to sound hard but neither is working for you. Btw, you're scaring me so you need to stop before I pee my pants.

Thanks for posting those pics showing the bottom of the core. It seems that at least 4 caisons are in place. I think I read that 6 are going to be placed down there. Well whatever the case, does anyone know what the next phase of construction is after this?

This photo of chicago spire base is weird. by looking at top of the picture or floors by the glass, the floors extend out to the edge (obviously), but looking at bottom ot the core, it looks like the tower itself is rising from just core size. Unlike other towers the base doesn't have floors wide as the whole tower, making it look like just core and tent wraping around the core and maybe less weight support for the outer floors above. (hope it makes sense)

In my opinion, you are making it sound like you expect the cladding to help support the tower. I'm not positive, but I believe the 6 spiraling columns support the building along with the core. Meaning, there really is no effect on support by not having floor plates and cladding extend to the base. I hope that helps you understand a little better?

P.S. - Chicago is world class, beautiful, and the birthplace of the skyscraper.

I think I had the same thoughts as buildmilehightower since the support at the bottom of this tower looks extremely flimsy and weak with all that open space. Most other skyscrapers seem to have thick solid pillars supporting the edge of the tower. I'm no structural engineer so it's not in my hands to worry about.

how many elevators will the spire have? Have they released the entire floor plan for the floors instead of just single apt floor plans?

Has there been any concrete trucks onsite yet? I was just curious if they started to fill the caissons at the bottom of the "pit o' death"?
