These shots are amazing. I walk by this every day and had no idea the hole was that deep!
Where will the 2 other cranes be located? This is supposed to have 3 total right?

This shit is mind blowing. Holy F'ing job site. Could anything be more large in it's dimensions? Nick that shot with the welders flames (sparks/whatever) is a piece of art. I'd love to have that framed on my wall. Wow!

Nick I echo all, I have been on this site since its earliest stages. I am Tony in Edgewater and some might remember, probably not. I mean this was like 20 years ago. The pics are just amazing!

I still monitor this site all the time. Does anyone have the last pic of the rendering when it was scaled down or know the page number to find it? Thank you.

I am not a balcony guy, but people like to throw money at homes with balconies, and if that's what it takes to make this a feasible building, then so be it!
I agree completely, they add a vertical texture that makes sense with the slab like setbacks. well integrated balconies if you ask me

I would imagine that the rendering on One Chicago's own web site is the most current design: https://liveonechicago.com/ . It looks fairly similar to the one on the 1st page of this thread, but with a few of the highest floors eliminated. As a result it's no longer a supertall, just a near-supertall.

Now that Vista has topped out, this is the next skyscraper for us Midwesterners to follow!

Keep running their dry-cleaning business.

It is pretty fascinating. Agreed.

^I would think the dry cleaner and restaurant are tenants (someone who knows how to look this kind of thing up in public records could weigh in)... did you ever see the Neflix show Ozark? Two cash businesses in the lone holdout property. The land must be worth nothing now. Plus it is Chicago after all. Just sayin.

My comment was made under the assumption that they owned the building. Some people, as crazy as it sounds, aren't always motivated by money. Who know's, maybe the person's dad built the building and he loves to dry clean for the neighborhood. Just saying. We've seen this in history before. (*please post the picture of the two story house sandwiched between monster high rises)

Last thing...nobody knows what the offer to these folks was. You never know, could have been average.

Email sent out from Alderman Hopkins today:

Subject: One Chicago Square: Large Concrete Pour Planned for November 9

Dear Neighbor,

As the One Square Chicago Project continues, please be aware that this Saturday, November 9, 2019, Power Construction will engage in a large, continuous concrete foundation pour at the site. Workers will begin staging four concrete pumps and other equipment at 4:30 AM, with the first concrete placement expected to begin at 5:45 AM.

The operation consists of 40 concrete trucks lining up throughout the course of the day to pour 3,500 cubic yards of concrete. The concrete pour is expected to take 10 to 12 hours to complete, with an additional hour for cleanup. Sweepers and vacuum trucks will be actively deployed to mitigate dust and dirt on the streets.

Flaggers will be posted on each of the four corners of the site for the duration of the event for pedestrian safety and traffic congestion mitigation. Concrete trucks will approach the site from Superior Avenue, north onto Dearborn, and will traverse the site clockwise to one of the four staging areas designated for each of the four pumps onsite.

Power Construction has secured the approval and proper permits for these plans from the Chicago Department of Transportation, which will also include street and sidewalk closures for the day.

Should you have any questions, please send an email to the 2nd Ward Service Office (Ward02@cityofchicago.org) or call (312) 643-2299.

Sincerely, Alderman Brian Hopkins
2nd Ward
