Caisson installation is wrapping up tomorrow on this one. Sheeting and excavation will start this week. Tower crane should be up by the end of June.

Odd that the big caissons appear to be right outside of the mat.

^^^ Could be that the big sheer walls they show projecting on the exterior sit right on top of the main cassions. Would be a little less convention, but totally feasible to build a building that has a few large sheer walls carrying a lot of the weight instead of the core which is what we usually see.
