Sure was a blessing that GEMS Phase II hadn't started yet. I'm curious if there was an inside deal between GEMS and Wanda or the City and GEMS to yield to Wanda.

Does the "shortest" part of this tower get built toward the rear of this photo?
Has 'Lowerfield Blvd' bit the dust or is the idea that it will somehow run thru the building on the ground level?
Thanks!

You may want to start at the beginning of the thread and work your way through a bit.

The shorter part is the east end or to the rear of the image.

Field Blvd. will be reconnected to lower Wacker beneath the tower.

Anyone know the current design status of the connection of LSE Park and Riverwalk under/through Vista? I thought I remembered seeing some renderings long ago of an improved experience connecting those two public green spaces, but maybe that was VE'ed?

I would have thought they would have one contiguous foundation mat tying together all the piles. It looks like their will be multiple, at-least 2?... or am I missing something?

You are missing the road that goes under the middle of the building. There will be two cores, one on each side of the road.

The mat could go under the road. I can't think of any other supertall that has two separate foundations.

^A continuous mat is not necessary. The structure will tie together just above the road. Plus, the cost along, with caissons and engineering, would be at least several hundred G's.

What purpose would the mat going under the road serve? Apart from costing more.

When you construct very large and heavy structures you generally want a single continuous rigid foundation so that if there is any chance of settling the building moves as a single object. This must not be a concern for this project with the size and depth of the piles used. It's just rare to see on a project this big, I think it's interesting and I look forward to seeing how they tie it all together!
