^I'd agree with you, if my comment weren't tongue in cheek! My pal appreciated the photo but I had him assure me that we will not see it on any billboards.

Great update Schell. Hope you don't mind, but I sent the top pic to my buddy at Stevenson, so you might see it up on their next billboard. :cheers:

My first billboard! This is awesome!

Word. Send them an invoice, ha. Billboards are big usage $$

as always, thanks for the pics.

If drilling begins before another tower finishes construction, then we will have 50 active skyscrapers under construction in the city.

Has that ever happened before?

Damn that is awesome. Was driving home down Eastbound Kennedy this afternoon, and just looking across the Chicago landscape seeing so many cranes was amazing!

What a time to be alive. in Chicago.

No. Which means we are already at 50

4 E Elm, Vue 53, the U of C dorms, and Nich 405 are all complete. There are probably a few others on the boom rundown list that are also complete. So we still have a bit to go before reaching 50 under construction.

Move it on up to u/c!

The Lurker Feb 16, 2017 6:30 AM

Excellent! This seems like its dragged on as long as River Point. Imagine how many pages this thread would be had it been started way back when this project was announced. Daniel, please do not move for the next two years!

Dan, you dont happen to have an extra web cam lying around do ya? Haha. Thats is the perfect view.

Skyguy_7 Feb 16, 2017 1:22 PM

WTF is going on guys? CASE is in the dirt, yet not a single banana to be found. Have we forgotten our struggles of 2009-2012? For shame. These are the days of celebration!

Yes! Let's pressure the Kennedy and surround the drivers to remind them where they are! Maybe soon we can start seeing more dream proposals for capping the expressway in place for a park, maybe some day it can be a reality
