Seems more like an archaeological dig than tower construction.
From looking at the work - it is the archelogical aspect ;-) That 12'+ trench around the South and East perimeter is criss-crossed by more than one utility run, the nasty liquid filled ones - most likely in vintage cast iron.

Last I checked they were making good progress on excavating out the area for the mat, note 110 N Wacker did little to no excavation.

3-4 months is not slow at all, especially considering how large this project is.

Global pandemic? Sure work is still commencing but I have to assume they're working with a limited crew at the very least.

Perhaps. I'm more disappointed by the blank wall at street-level along Clinton.
