^ More than 1 parking spot per unit does not seem reasonable to me

Do you think it should be less? The more parking the better.

I don't agree with that at all but I do think that the units/parking ratio provided is reasonable and realistic especially coupled with the 400 spaces for bicycles, although I really doubt that they need that many for this particular project. It is nice to have though.

May 14 - Noon 2

An empty hole



The set of 4 green compressors is gone


Pulling a tooth


Talking Dirt


Dwindling supply of secant beams ( columns ? )


Making a muddy hole






Appears that some big caissons still need rebar cages.


Really long caisson tops.






Center of gravity, and lift points

May 14 - Belled caisson

Guiding it in





Pull it out - unlatch the botom hatch - step back and empty





Swinging a new sleeve over

May 14 - Secant at the gate

Slip it in #1









Buissiness end #1





Slip it in #2









Latch it









Bussiness end #2







on the mark











hit the guide wall dead on - didn't even nick the sides





All these steps were done in one try ( 2 for the first bit ), there was no talking, everyone seemed quite practiced.

I doubt many of the people who will buy a unit own cars anyways I'd expect many of the to have private drivers and even jets. If I was THAT rich I sure as hell wouldn't be driving much less wipping my own ass... have someone else do it for you.1,350 car parking garage is plenty.

We had that discussion before. I said many people who are that affluent have a really nice car collection. And even if they dont drive themselves (what i would never do.. even if i was Warren Buffet) they have to park their Maybach in the Garage.

You could even say a proper garage space would be one of the MOST important factors if i buy a condoe... and i'm also in some car forums with very rich people and very expensive cars who see it like that.

I think most of the really rich and affluent people who purchase property in this building won't make it their permanent residence. And it is possible in some cities to buy your own small parking garage for a car collection.

South Africa: Steep Price for Chicago Spire View
http://allafrica.com/stories/200805140417.html

Noteworthy bits:

Quote:
The $3bn project, being developed by Irish company Shelbourne Development Group and designed by renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, is being marketed in SA by Pam Golding Properties' international division.
Quote:
He said the company had received a "phenomenal" reception from its global road shows to market the property, but about 50% of interested buyers were from Chicago.
Quote:
Murphy said they expected to sell at least a third of the apartments by September this year.

either that, or you have enough money to afford any car you like (Koenigsegg, Zonda etc.) and you wouldn't want a driver to be driving those babies for you, now would you?

Great updates Harryc.

Your updates are easily the best updates of any project on SSC. Even better than Imre's in the burj thread.
