What kind of pre-fab technique and where?

I don't see how any can be used, certanly not for the central core. Since the apartments seams to have floor-to-ceiling windows, I doubt any would be used for the side panels as well.

In the documentary from the Tribune they said that the major components would be manufactured off site and assembled by the cranes. I don't recall if they said where they would be made at.

This project currently doesn’t have a building contractor?? That would explain a lot.
I can only assume that financing is in the "core" of the entire problem surrounding the tower construction then.
Why did the previous contractor back down? If there had been a previous contractor.

The foundation was build by "Case Foundation", that's a contractor specialized in building foundations for buildings. It's very common that the foundation is build by a different company then the actual construction of the building, Case also build the foundation for the Trump Tower for example.

So now were waiting until a contractor is chosen to build the actual building. Because of the financial crisis it could take a while until the party begins.

Shouldn't such things be pre-planned? Delays in the construction business always mean losing vast amounts of money with no actual work ever been done. You can say waiting is the number one killer of any construction project.

Will they be losing more money with a hole in the ground for a couple of months or a completed tower with only 50% of the units sold?
