This is the horizontal version of the "Chicago Spire the beginning: 2
," and this one has the center caisson showing. I especially like the tire tracks pattern in the dirt. Dump trucks enter the site and circle around the center caisson to receive their shipment of dirt dug up from the caisson holes.
About the spire:
North America's tallest building will be the Chicago Spire towering in a 2,000 feet. It has prime real estate being located just north of the Chicago River and just east of Lake Shore Drive. It will also be at the forefront of the Chicago skyline as viewed from Lake Michigan. Designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, this skyscraper is scheduled to be completed in 2010 with 150 floors
