At SSP, BVictor1 astutely noted that the soil testing rig is positioned on the north side of the lot which is the location of the rental tower.

I read that these are 2 separate projects - I had assumed they would be one.

I'm getting very excited about this project especially seeing the soil testing rigs parked in the lot! It's like the first time we saw the soil rigs at the chicago Spire site. Kudos to you Harry for being brave/crazy enough to walk outside in this crappy weather we've been having.

It's just public notice that the developer has filed a PD with the city. The rental tower is being built under current zoning for that part of the property. W=A needs an increase in the height.

I know how you feel buddy. I feel spires are being utilized on too many under construction and even proposed buildings lately. it's nice to see that this will not have a tacky extension of that sort.

Does anybody have an idea as to when this project will go before the city for approval?
