CTA Red & Purple Modernization Brown Line Bypass Caisson Construction Dec 2019

I spent 2 days this week filming Walsh construction crews installing a huge caisson for the Brown Line Flyover bridge. This was a once in a lifetime to be on site and so close to a major construction project. Equipment used: Heavy Duty Buckner LTR-1220 Crawler Crane & Bauer BG39 Auger.

Video 4: Placing the Caisson’s Rebar Cage.

I'd say 3/5 (NEMA, Paragon, Esperanza Center) for sure are in the top 5, but not as convinced on the other 2. The Independence Apartments are decent but unremarkable and I'm not a fan at all of the Keller Center.
NEMA and The Paragon are great additions to our skyline. The Paragon is a perfect example (much like 110 Wacker) of how to make a "blue glass box" more interesting.

Anyone care to predict what the top 5 buildings of 2020 will be? Vista, 800W Fulton, WPE, 110 Wacker and maybe something else?

Do we have a start date for 375 N. Morgan? It is one of the more interesting proposed buildings in the neighborhood.

This looks like it is actually 345 Morgan. 375 is north of the tracks, and at this point might be dead.
