    I don't know what impressed me the most...the building or the website. Both are pretty slick. That would be a heck of a project to work on. I've worked on some big hunks of concrete, but foundation's gonna be a BIG hunk of concrete.

    It will change the traditional look of the Chicago skyline from the lake, for sure. Thanks for the quick look. I wouldn't go back to see it in person for nuttin'.

    I can't see living in a drill bit. I'm like Frank, don't care if I ever see that city again.

    Hmmmmm, seems I have a tapered reamer somewhere that looks inexplicably like that. (WOW, where did that word come from?)

    Finally, a job for those carpenters that can't read a square!

    I have an idea what the nickname for that building may be, but being a PG site, I won't mention it here...just let it happen.

    Let's see, 1200 residences... Just how honking big a parking garage are they going to slip under that thing? Around here you'd have a hard time selling a condo without an available parking spot. Maybe things are a bit different in a big city, but still... Even if NONE of the residences get a parking spot you need to have some parking for visitors...
    There's usually more than one way to do it...
