I'm always surprised the Roosevelt Collection doesn't get more attention, it's just as visible as OMPW is from the Roosevelt 'L' station and I feel like anyone waiting on the platform, or running to Target could always snap a pic or two.
Looks like 12 storeys to me if you count from Wells and include the Roof slab:
R2 retail and the Kerasotes theater @ North end
R1 @ Roosevelt St grade. retail and the Kerasotes theater @ North end
P3 @ Wells St. grade. parking
3 tower cranes all with their swing radii overlapping, and not a single incident or accident.
4 piling rigs, driving over 40 miles of pile... that's more than Soldier Field and a record in Chicago.
3 RT cranes
3 concrete pumps was the most we had to bring out on any single day.
of concrete poured to date.
of rebar placed to date.
Still not significant enough for you Tom?
Let me put it in perspective for all of you. If you were to assume a typical highrise floor plate of around 13,000 sf @ 8" thick and deduct about 30,000 cys for the foundation... we could have built a 178 storey building.
Here's some pics
