Interesting how much faster Salesforce seems to be building out their floors -- the top and bottom -- compared to Kirkland, who's still expecting a year before they're finished.

The Blue Line actually runs under the River Point tower - it veers to the north side of Lake St to avoid the bridge caissons.

I assume any new tower on that lot west of River Point would be pushed to the north, to get some river corridor views over Gibsons, with a plaza or lowrise section at the southern tip where the CTA tunnel runs underneath.

They lifted 7000 lbs of HVAC equipment up with a helicopter on Saturday. Video on Skender's twitter

I think a spire would have looked great from that view. From the east and west....maybe, not so much.

Solarwind, that last shot might be this tower's best angle.

Not to be a downer if the crown was lit as well

proportions out of whack, the scalloped crown from the west doesn't appear balanced, no cohesion and even the relationship to the shorter "twin" is unconvincingly resolved. fully confess to being guilty of beating a dead horse here, but this tower consistently finds new ways to disappoint.

one of the highest-profile missed opportunities in the history of Chicago skyscraper architecture.

I walk by this building 4-6 times a week and man is it disappointing they didn't go a few hundred feet taller. I know, money and time were the factors here, but just 20 extra floors would have really made this building feel like it does this site justice. At least it's decent looking building I guess. And I guess we should be thankful they didn't go shorter.
