Anybody know if they're pumping the hole? It seems like there'd be a lot of seepage that close to the water.
The little landscaping was (at least in part ) work on the path connecting East North Water with the path along the S side of the slip. The thistle was inspired and em placed by nature. I have seen no evidence of the hole being pumped out - this doesn't rule it out, but I don't see why they would, if anything the water would help relieve some of the pressure on the coffer dam.

looking at it from distance made me realise just how shallow the core's depth is compared to height of the tower above ground.

That is unused space within the Lakeshore East development. There are 6 buildings up so far (340 On The Park, Aqua, Tides, etc.), with up to 9 more in the future. 3 more buildings are tentatively spec'd out for the empty space you see.

For a (very) large PDF of the entire development, including potential future buildings: http://magellansells.com/maps/sitemap.pdf

Bet the spire is thinner than I thought by just comparing that hole with the bases of other towers.

Hole is for core - building will be as wide as the lot is, from town homes to LakeShoreDrive.
