That just to prevent trespassers from falling down that "empty swimming pool."

Well I wouldn't consider a good news either. If they are repairing it it means it will be coming down in the near future and it needs to come down for construction to resume.

I quite agree with your last sentence. That means hope is on the way. This project is inexcusably important to Chicagoans as well as all Americans. And, that must see the light of the day, when people like Warren Buffet, Donald Trumps,etc are there with positive investment acumens.

I was refering to the orange "fencing" around the radiation areas, which are in the park. The steel fence around the pit appears quite sturdy.

Am not going to laugh with you because I don't see the swimming pool you're talking about. For a point of correction the hole is not a swimming pool.

It's sarcasm, obviously. No good deed goes unpunished around here, it seems.

Oh you mean, add more fiber to your diet. Lol...

Now I understand why people have no better reasons of being skeptical about the project.

What I don't like is that people want to see when American projects fail.

If you are an American and why don't you proudly show were you live in your title?

It doesn't matter! What matters is how much concern I have on this topic. Nevetheless, it's generated more off-topics.

Guys: chill out!
We all want to see this tower get built.

As for friendsofthecity, you should take things a little less seriously my friend... This is an internet forum and we won't change a thing to what actually goes forward project-wise so, no need to react with such 'dedication' to every little comment you don't fully approve. Just an advice.

With all that temporary construction fencing going up you'd certainly think they were planning on starting to do something. It's not as if there have been a lot of people wandering around the site, climbing on the dirt piles are running motorcycles around. I also don't remember that propane tank being there before, was it? Show numbers
