April 16 - Lunch

From above



higer res
2007 series
2008 Q1 series
2008 Q2 series





Neat "little" crane


I like the mirrors to check on the cables.


Doing one of the last sections of Slurry Wall


Spectators


Quite a show
I didn't realise that they can rotate the clamshell, very deftly moving the scoop so as not to spill any clay.


Dumping while loading in the background.


Good blue clay






LSD offers a great view.






Yet another crane ?




The ever present survey crews.

Yes - - the entire site will be excavated down 70+ feet.

For the hole - once the caissons are all in, the big crane will be removed and little rigs, and men with shovels, will dig out the tops of the caissons, the rebar that integrates into the mat.

As done at 353 N Clark

The core is 60+ feet down now -
The walls of the site are almost completed, and yes they are 75-85' deep, it is hard to grasp how deep this is until you see a 40' + cage lowered in, stopped, and another 40' + cage tied on top.

1/2 a section for the slurry wall


Secant beam


Russia tower will have much deeper walls, 40 Meters (!)

I see. We do have soil remediation here too, for redevelopment on sites that include former petrol stations, shipyards, industrial land etc that become residential.

Chicago has a look at me state of mind. I mean what is it your city know for really. And you can't talk about WTC. Look how ugly the empty as sears tower is. I bet you think your doing something in the Chi don't you. I bet you even think chicago's a world class city. But I'm sorry to tell you it really isn't. Your city sucks I mean it really sucks. But I ain't here to trash chi town. Oh yeah you might want to get your face in a book and quit getting your info off the internet. I've read the time lines and chicago having the first skyscraper doesn't add up. They had what some could call the first skyscrapers in France.

But I'm sick of talking with a bunch of know nothings. I told the truth and facts if a buildings ugly it's ugly. But it's like I said this building isn't ugly but the sear tower is.

Now lets stop city bashing. There great city's in their own right's. All the nonsense aside chicago happens to be my second favorite midwest city beside Columbus. And it's my third fav city in the USA. We're all americans right guys, Where all humans. Then lets act like it. We should all be happy we have amazing buildings on our planet that we all can sure and be proud off.
This guy is hilarious! I know it's pathetic, but you gotta admit his bi-polarness during the past few pages sure has been entertaining. I guess every city has one...

You don't need to act like you're on the streets. Everyone here shares a common interest in skyscrapers, so just chill a bit.

And don't be so concerned about getting a ban, it's not the end of the world!! As you say you've probably got other things you could do, so stop caring so much!!

Finally, Some (Unconfirmed) Chicago Spire Sales Numbers

April 15, 2008 - The Chicago Spire launched its Asian city marketing tour last month, and according to the Singapore Property News Blog, the primary event held at Singapore’s Four Seasons Hotel drew about 800 potential buyers for the planned 150 story Chicago real estate project. International sales are being handled by Savills, and manager Michael Ng was quoted as saying the “large turnout and sales were above what they had expected.” No official statement was made, but inside sources claimed 30 condos were sold at the event.
