quick question. I live very nearby this site and there is a constant, loud banging noise that is basically all day every day.

Anybody know what this might be? or when it might end...

(Pregnant fiance wants to know)

Pounding those long steel beams into the ground. It should be done soon, but until then plug your ears.

great, thanks for the quick response.

soon = 1 week, or 1 month?

also, is this typical of other high-rise construction prep?

first time we've heard it in the south loop that i can recall

Not an engineer, so someone correct me if wrong....Believe that instead of drilled/poured concrete caissons they are using driven H-piles for the foundation work due to certain soil conditions. The repetitive banging is the pile driver, though I am unsure of a completion eta. Once the building starts going vertical it should stop.

I know there are other examples but the first to come to mind is Alta Roosevelt (Polk and Financial) also in the South Loop. That one should be topping out any day now

Will this have underground parking-basement levels?

A pile of piles remains

Could be wrong, but I think they may have wrapped the h pile driving.....haven't heard it at least for the last couple days.....

Yeah i was going to say walking to the metallica concert it looked like they still had pile equipment on base.

Finished with the Friction piles, almost done with the sheet piles

can you see me now ? High Visibility gear mandatory.


Hangers


No. 60


How you attach friction piles to the mat. (rebar is welded on)

The wire is to keep the rebar at least on aggregate size away from the "surface" [the size of the rocks used in the concrete]

Preparing for the mat

This is going to be such a sexy filler for the south loop. I guess at nearly 50 floors you can hardly call this a filler though.

At nearly 500 feet this will be anything but filler. It will be the tallest building this far South in the entire city. Buildings like this will really help build up the 4th peak in the skyline that is developing at Roosevelt and Michigan. If we can get a supertall on the corner there, it will be a full fledged 4th peak for the skyline, really a game change aesthetically for the city. Buildings like SoMi (here we go again with the trite naming conventions) will do a lot to beef up and build up towards the taller buildings coming down the pipeline.

What's the third peak?
