Never considered this angle. Will the tower line up with MCClurg court? That would be a wicked terminus for this budding view corridor

It will also terminate LSD opposite the already awesome Field Museum view from the South. It will also be dead ending Wacker from the West where it will soar above the 20-30 floor buildings and Mather Tower in the foreground. I'm most looking forward to that angle as I have a feeling there will be some Trump-Wrigley style echo views aligning Mather's thin needle and the topmost skinny portion of Vista.

Do you know what volume we are talking about for this one? Looks like an incredibly thick mat.

Do they remove the scaffolding supporting the upper layers of rebar before the pour, or does it get incorporated into the mat?

Can we make a kickstart or donation page for all these photographer's so we can at least get them some lawn chairs, pizzas and a case of beer for the time they spend for a pour this size. It's going to be epic, thanks in advance fellas.

I'll likely make it down armed with an iPhone 7. Not the best camera, but hopefully someone with real equipment can make it down as well

As someone who knows very little about cement, I was wondering if cement pours ever have to be rescheduled because of super cold weather.

Obviously, tomorrows forecast weather should present no major issues.

But if we were in the middle of a polar vortex, would everything go smoothly if the temperature were 10 or 20 below zero?

They poured 150 N Riverside when it was well below zero so yes they can do it when it is very cold. Additives have to be added to the cement.

Weather can affect the curing but there are additives that can be used to help counteract the temperature. (Both hot and cold) These additives help speed or slow the curing process to offset temperature influence

For a pour of of 4000cy, the concrete curing will produce a fair amount of heat. The conditions will be more problematic for the people and machines working in them.

That said, rain or snow is more problematic than temperature. A batch of ready mix concrete is usually has a specific amount of water that can be added before it is no longer viable. Heavy rains for large element pours are show stoppers.

And, sorry to be pedantic, but they pour concrete not cement. Cement is a powder, but an ingredient in concrete.
