I agree the city isn't going to just decide to shell out money to make these high rises more desirable. The only possibilities I see for building it are (1) when the rest of LSE Block C is built out, and (2) whenever Wacker is rebuilt.

Tired ono shots of this core from the ground:

Another building born too late to know the Cubs as the lovable losers, still flying the "W":

No idea why these aren't working right now...

This should work.
The problem was you were using links to the page not the image. In the future you can just right click on the image (PC) or ctrl click on the image (Mac) and there should be an option to copy the image direct image url.

Pro tip: Add 'h' to the end of the filename if the image size is too big for the typical desktop screen. For example "http://i.imgur.com/Q6AzqBc.jpg" would become "http://i.imgur.com/Q6AzqBch.jpg" to constrain the dimensions to 1024px x 1024px.

Thanks for the photos, LdvW! You captured an exciting phase of the project.

When do you think we'll start to see the core rise over Upper Wacker? Maybe by the beginning of summer?

If winter stays away like it has for the last month it may even be a bit sooner. The progress has really been impressive to this point.

It's still the foundation stage even though they're done with caissons. This is the tying of the caissons together for added support with rebar. Then they'll pour concrete to form a mat.

I think only two, one East of Field Drive, one West of it (the big one they are building the mat for).

Thanks, was on my phone and couldn't use the imgur format I'm used to. Also thanks for the downsizing the dimensions, used to manually resize them via imgur's editor, total pain in the butt.

This mat pour is pretty cool to watch in time lapse. One of the largest I've seen. Massive effort

That was pretty cool. I hope someone can set up a time laps for this one.

That one was 35,000 sq feet in 19 hours. Any idea the size of this mat will be?
