Umm try hurray for excavation...

Anyone else see that, I think I see more foundation than before exposed on the building next to WV and a backhoe in there. I don't know what else would be going on except them finally excavating the rest of the site...

Bvic am I right or am I just seeing things?

^I think you are right. I was down by the site this week, and it looks like they are beginning excavation next to the LaSalle-Wacker building.

Well they are definately digging now...

Wow that is quite the operation, I particularly like that super long backhoe that can lift the dirt all of the way of of the hole/pit. It won't be much longer until this baby really starts to rise! Just 2 or 3 more months and the first floor should be clearly visible, don't you think?

solarwind, thanks a million for these, and all the other construction shots you posted today.

just think about how much we all long for detailed shots of the births sears and aon and hancock and other notable chicago towers, and they are extremely rare when you come across them, but with the new crop of supertalls, all of you wonderful photographers are ammasssing and excellent visual record of the starts of the new chicago supertowers. these kinds of shots transcend mere skyscraper internet geekery and, upon completion, will constitute a very important historical record for the internet nerds of the future to drool over (if they'll even still have the internet in the future)

Great point! The internet has changed the world in unexpected ways, and this sort of historical record is one of them. The age of information that the internet has provided is truly awesome. 20 years ago, very few people would have any information regarding the building of new skyscrapers in their own city, much less world-wide. Now, not only do people world-wide have access to this information, but it will be preserved for posterity!

Not much. Several feet I believe. There is a small setback I believe on the 2nd or 3rd floor.

So alot of people in that other building will be looking at a wall now?

Will Waterview have any windows at all on that side?

I feel as if the core should have been on the top left corner, giving maximum floorspace with window (street view) access
