Yeah that promotional video was pretty dramatic for such a non descript tower. No doubt the office space and views in there will be first class but you have to do more as a skyscraper in Chicago than a 800 foot blue glass box that has the same crown as its 600 foot neighbor.

Steel?
 
Looks like they should be ready to start putting up steel. Could we see that this week?

By the size of the core which is as wide as WPE makes me think this tower is going to look massive!

110's best angle imo

This is a great point, Donnie. The only criticism of this tower that I can see is that it's not another 200 feet (at least). Besides that, it's going to be an incredibly prominent tower. It's going to look fantastic.

I wish someone would develop that parking lot at Fulton and Canal to fill in that gap at the end of the main stem of the river.

On the contrary, then the river will become a true boxed canyon and look incredibly compressed and short. Even SalesForce is sadly diminishing the the open, airy feeling of the river which currently is an open canyon with amazing light and atmospheric effects at sunset and late afternoon. Enjoy it while you can because it's going to change dramatically and not for the better I'm afraid.

That barge sailed years ago - 2009 to be exact.

Or put a tall one at halsted/Fulton on that parking lot. Easily could fit a 50-story there

It's like they know just when we're starting to run out of buildings to watch be constructed here on SSP :haha:

Great photo! I am really starting to appreciate the
development design's 'natural' river's edge. In this view it appear the ground is gently sloping towards the water like the shore of a small lake.

Does anyone know if there's a webcam/OxBlue for this project? Working my sources, but am interested in a cam around the confluence to track river ice...for photo purposes.
