Salesforce making its presence known. Starting to pop up via the lake in the skyline.

Fantastic shot. And from now on I'm referring to One Chicago as 'The Blade.'

This tower is going to be very prominent from the NW despite not being 900'.

They are currently pouring the 7th floor on the core above the transfer/mech floor with the higher ceiling height. There will be 8 floors above the mech floor before the first set back. That means the core still has at least 4-5, maybe even 6 or 7 levels to pour before topping out and then you have screening above that. The core already pokes out 5 floors or so above everything else in that part of the skyline from the Kennedy, with another 6 or 7 floors worth of height this will dominate everything in that section of skyline including 300 N LaSalle.

It still amazes me how "from the Kennedy" is the primary way such a large segment of the population interprets the Chicago skyline.

Nice shots, core looks about 750' so may top out by years end

A. Its the best angle of the skyline that is not from the Shedd.

B. This building will be by far the most prominent when viewed from the NW...

^ and we all know it's often the angle of first impression for people coming from ORD etc

Not a bad angle to welcome people to our city I'd say. Probably the best angle, or perhaps tied with SB LSD south of Diversey, or NB LSD just past McCormick Place.

I actually always like the northbound view on lsd coming from MSI. Maybe just cause I always see it from coming in on the Stevenson or from the west loop.

The most recently framed floor appears to be taller than the others. I would guess it's level 50, based on the stacking plan. This also means the steel has reached the height of the first setback:

After the mech floors of 38 & 39 there's 11 more floors just like the diagram linked.

However, the 12th is clearly taller and is NOT stepped back from my view... (zoomed in and counted on my camera to double check).

Kirkland & Ellis conference floor/C-suite?

So you're saying the 51st is taller but the 50th is not and there is no setback from 50-51 like in the stacking plan?

We needs some pics... I'm literally going to go outside in a few minutes to look lol.

Took a quick look. Was a good excuse to take a nice stroll in this 63 degree December weather.

As Ricochet48 described the 51st is clearly taller than the 50th which looks like a typical size so they have definitely deviated from the published stacking plan. I couldn't see any noticeable setback from 50 to 51 either and pretty sure there is not. So they may have squeezed in another floor before the setback or taken it from elsewhere. Hopefully this adds a little height to the building. Or maybe there's some more surprises to come.

Shows the larger 51st (vs 50th in https://www.333wolfpoint.com/wp-cont...cking-Plan.pdf) and there doesn't appear to be any setback either.
