Little Ferry, N.J. A pair of “Super Climbers,” or self-climbing form systems, scale the heights of 2550 N. Lakeview, an 800,000-sq-ft luxury condominium in Chicago's Lincoln Park. The two systems allow general contractor Walsh Construction Co., Chicago, to build the structure's two cores as quickly as its horizontal slabs, thereby speeding up construction time. The $188-million Lakeview project is due for completion in early 2012.
