This morning, however, I walked by the site on my way to work and there was a lot more activity going - quite a few trucks were parked inside the site and the heavy equipment was in full use. They were moving dirt around and there was a big truck unloading more equipment.

I live three blocks away from the site so I'll keep you guys informed of the progress and I'll try to take some pictures of the work activity tomorrow morning.

We are aslo going to have weekly construction progress photos of all the bigger projects we have in Chicago as of next week in NewcitySkyline.

^ Well, it does look like they are moving along so I guess the status could be changed at this point.

Have no fear young one, 4 VICTOR is here

I've just come from downtown where I stopped at the site to check for any activity, and what do I see while peaking over the fence, but the beautiful site of yellow and blue paint of a CASE CAISSON CRANE

It still needs to be assembled, but none-the-less, this is a major step in the right direction.

This oneis about to get started.

Saw that last night, there is some heavy stuff there for sure, also some permits were recently hung outside the fencing dated 6-11-06. I didn't have my glasses so, i couldn't read it. Its moving ahead though.

WOW!

thanks for the report, vic. it's a little hard to believe that they might actually build this one. wasn't it "supposed" to start back in spring of '04? i can't believe that the people who bought places there actually hung around this long.

^ Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. Then, when you criticize them, you will be a mile away... and have their shoes.

I couldn't help myself. Saw it on a sports message board yesterday and it cracked me up at the time.

Anyway, great news hearing that the caisson crane is on site. They better get movin. They got a lot of catching up to do.

Wow, it all happened so fast. Good news. I guess given how far they're excavating it probably won't rise above street level for a good 6 months?
