If it inspires you, I respect that

This has to be one of the most photographed construction sites ever. I've never walked by and not seen multiple people taking photos.

Not only is it moving very fast but it is right next to the trains. Win win for snapping photos.

Those last photo sets answer my caisson question from a few days ago. They are popping up everywhere. I guess I'm not surprised as they are digging out the site more and more.

Thanks for the amazing updates everyone.

# 18 is roughly 13.6 LBS per linear foot.

I know they can make them to 20 feet but these don't look that long. If it was a 20 footer it would be pushing 300 pounds.

It would be nice to know the length of them for general knowledge.

The placement of those portable offices on the Northern portion of the site seem a bit peculiar... I mean I get the whole point of portable offices is that they can be moved, but won't those have to be moved in just a couple months anyway? Seems odd to me

Those are in shipping containers. The crane can literally just grab them on all four corners and lift them anywhere else on site...

Ahh, they looked kind of like those portable classrooms which seemed a little too fragile to be moved via crane. Good to know

They are stack-able as well - and yes with AC units.
