It's really not a big deal to me, especially since it's really happening, but what is going on at the site if not 'construction' ? Site prep is already complete. Do we distinguish between 'groundbreaking' and construction ?

The Chicago urban development cognoscenti don't consider a building to be "under construction" until caissons are being drilled.

But the great unwashed considers it under construction when the site is a beehive of activity and they're digging halfway to Hades.

I think when they actually start the caissons, then it's technically "under construction". I could be wrong, though.

Yeah, I think that's Emporis' critierion. Seems a little arbitrary though. Whatever.

A note from the massive numbers of the "GREAT UNWASHED." I personally spoke to employees on the site. The information that they're under construction came from them.

I thought that the building would have some terraces? Is it all windows?

The Chi-Spire is being built people... relax.

I'm still in awe over this scraper, just imagine in a few years standing under it and looking straight up into the Chi-Town heavens! It will make the fake tower in Will Smith's I-Robot look like a piece of puppy doo-doo!
