No drill bit on that rig.

I'm sorry for being persnickety, but has an actual caisson been drilled?

Any concrete trucks?

As of 1 PM today, no. Still in site prep per SSP convention.

I'm not convinced at all. It could top out in 2022 and I still would not be convinced. It could be a like a Chinese ghost building....


Even if its filled to capacity I still will not be convinced it is a real building.


It would still be a fake studio prop building with simulated people living and screwing in it.

Pretty sure I spotted the base of a crane this morning while riding the train.

I suppose this convention was superseded by this news article titled "Construction begins on Helmut Jahn’s 74-story tower that will alter the skyline": https://chicago.curbed.com/2019/10/2...groundbreaking

When judging things sky-scrapery this forum is a source of authority, Curbed is not.

^^SSP convention dictates that bananas shall remain idle until actual caisson drilling has commenced. I thought I saw holes Monday night but that report appears to have been inaccurate. I redact my previous bananas but will instruct them to stretch their legs for imminent dancing.

While we're a long ways away from seeing the base of a tower crane, it looks like they erected the crawler crane yesterday, which is essential to caisson sleeve/rebar installation. Another step in the right direction.

another case of premature banaculation.....you guys really should see a Dr about that....

And there we go....

:banana::awesome::dancing:

Now, once we get confirmation of actual financing, my skepticism will go onto hibernation.

And I certainly hope that deal has closed.

Teng said back in 2008 (I think it was) that they had a commitment for the Inport/Export Bank of China for Waterview Tower, until they didn't.

Right but that tower it was financed with Chinese dollars this is American money…..and not likely we are not facing another 2008 situation theres a reason that was a great recession. This time is different so back to bananas :skyhighmind::dancing::dancing::dancing:
