Yep, I'm still wondering when the surprise when happen. Sooner or (usually) later, Carl does seem to get his projects built.

I'm surprised with all the fanfare Carl usually likes that we haven't had any sort of press release or heard anything from Dranoff about construction kicking off, if that's truly what is happening here.

I...if they're drilling caissons, this thing is... dare I say... officially be able to be tagged as U/C? Right? That IS a caisson drill in the photo, but it somehow seems premature....

regardless of semantic specifics that only apply on this site, I thnk it's safe to say its under construction. Everywhere else, any site work taking place after the site is cordoned off and permits are issued is considered "construction".

It's definitely not caisson drilling.

Those are shoring drivers.

Yes, that makes sense. They are putting in the shoring beams that will hold the lagging in place as they dig down. Cassions would be much closer to the center of the site.

Official GB is tomorrow and it appears there is no mention of the initial architect.

It certainly looks different to me, but perhaps its just because of the rendering vantage point

What a sharp looking design. Glad they didn't go with Baker on this one. I'm super excited for this to go up, and it looks to be well over 500.' It should actually be taller than the height listed in the thread title rn, as it's going to be 47 stories.

So is this actually (imminently) under construction, or are we going to need to wait around another 6 months or so for them to actually do anything on the site? It sounds like its imminent but I don't want to get my hopes up...
