When the end gets bouncing (harmonics with the pump ?) the guy on the end just guides it a bit. A big selling point for much of this equipment is that it doesn't require boom time. The concrete pump/boom, the climbing forms for the core, even the screens on the outside.

The company that does the form on this site Doka Forms

Had a feeling we would see this core lift off from the rest of the structure. This is going to be a badass construction site to watch rise. The West core is already getting close to the top of the lobby level and into the hotel floors. Soon this will be visible rising from all sorts of angles.

I'm running the JP Morgan Corporate Challenge this evening. The race route loops down Middle Wacker. Looking forward to getting my first in-person look at the construction.

And thanks as well everyone for all the photos.

Garage is entirely "below grade" from Wacker. Once the lobby and funky conference spaces are done, this suckers gonna take off as if it's not already cruising along for such a large and complex project. Magellan and Wanda have to be very happy with the contractor at this point.

Seriously this has been such a well managed site so far (knock on wood), I'm absolutely astounded every time new photos go up.

Stupid question time - do they need to be quite sure of the weather to pour concrete, or does rainfall not really affect it while it sets?

They will cover it with tarps if it rains (or snows) .
