Not my favourite Stern design but it's a relief to see a design that's not all blue glass. Good to see this one getting underway.

Not rock socketed - also looks like there will be no basement in the skyscraper next to the underground garage - that's just wrong.

The rebar poking up out of the caisson sleeve shows where the top of the foundation mat will be.

Very Big belling bit ( the wings fold in while it is lowered 50-80' down the shaft, then pulled open by a cable, distributing the load over a much larger area.

A pile of pilings - from when this was the waterfront.

on the way to Navy Pier - there is quite a bit of tourist traffic here.

Too few cable runs - always too few.
