Digging Deep for a 51-Story Wacker Drive Skyscraper

It’s been a short while since the former GGP Building at 110 North Wacker Drive bit the dust.  Now that the dust has been removed, construction crews are getting down to business. Way down.  Like two stories below ground.

As you can see in the photograph above sent in by Loop Spy Chris, crews are already below the level of Lower Wacker Drive, so we should see caissons being build fairly soon.

When complete, the new Goettsch Partners-designed 110 North Wacker will be a 51-story office tower that also adds another link to Chicago’s downtown riverwalk system.
