There is significant ongoing ground activity at this site. It is very active. Also, it looks like they are doing ground work under the entire footprint of both buildings, not just one.

Also, work has started on demolition across the street to make way for more city mansions here:

Awesome updates per usual, TCO - also, these should be called the Chia Mansions.

Is that a 5 storey drill at River Walk site? How far down do the caissons have to go there?

When FMC was built on the other side of the river I believe they had to go down to around 100'+-. I would guess the depth has to do with going down until you hit bedrock, and the width of the drill/foundation would determine how much weight each point can support. Where they are drilling was once the river not to long ago. That section of the Schuylkill is tidal.

didn't get a picture because there was stuff in the way, but it looks like they're digging the foundation. Also, does this mean they're constructing both towers at once? I thought the plan was to wait on the 2nd along the RR line:
