I'm not sure exactly what you mean, but the the river-front space shown will be public (in fact, it already is, minus for the part under construction). You can go get an overpriced pour-over from Blue Bottle Coffee and drink it on a bench by the river right now.

I don't know what side is the "left side" but all development within 100 feet of the river edge requires a planned development that aligns to everything listed here: https://www.chicago.gov/city/en/dept...es-update.html

Not all riverwalk will look like the section downtown on the main branch.

Its easier to see the texture change of the glass here from the ledge on the setback around the 50th and up.

More glass progress on the north face. Won't be long now.

When this is done, the 805' 1000M will be the tallest under-construction building in Chicago. Hopefully 400 Lake Shore Drive (875') and Lakeshore East Parcel I (at least 950') will keep the current boom going.

Exciting day. Looking forward to seeing how it looks with those vertical lines matching WPE.

Great close up of the larger fins on the top floors as well. Thanks Solar.

Because he's such a chubby boy.

That's the problem with office towers today, they all have to be obese to be attractive to tenants.

It better be (and I think it will) - especially since the setbacks provide convenient places to mount the lighting. Salesforce SF has the entire crown as an LED screen that displays artwork so SalesForce I think is very pro lighting.

Also the lobby is supposed to have video screens I think (similar to the SF lobby as well.)

See https://www.333wolfpoint.com/gallery/ for pics. I'm really looking forward to this but haven't seen too many details about it.

Will the fins on the glazing be installed all the way down? or only the upper floors? I'm not too hopeful about the larger ones being illuminated given that east's never were and are very similar, hope to be proved wrong! would love to see them be able to change color and match the rest of the city on special dates or give a little show like the new one atop sears

that's not really a new development in chicago.

the chunky office tower has been the default program in this town since the '50s.

Their current placement of the fins matches renders of them only being on the top 10 floors or so. So I'm pretty confident they will not be going lower than that.

WPE is a fully residential building while WPS is fully commercial. There aren't many residential buildings that have lighting programs that I can think of so I don't think it's a good litmus test. Salesforce being a commercial entity will want their name on the building attractively displayed at night. Also this dusk render appears to show it illuminated (https://www.hines.com/properties/sal...-south-chicago), but I'm not sure about the color lighting. But I'd be shocked if it wasn't part of the city's coordinated lighting program given Salesforce's elaborate lighting on their San Francisco tower and the prominent location of this tower here.

Also, does it feel like they sed a fair bit of the setbacks originally planned for the front? looks like 3/4 instead of the 5/6 rendered on the hines site.

^ I think it's still too early to make that conclusion. The setbacks are pretty subtle even in the renderings so until the glass is up I don't think we can say if the design changed a bit.

Longer than that... the quarter-block office towers from the 1910s and 1920s with light courts were seen as pretty chunky too, especially compared to NYC's towers from that era which were less boxy and usually had more of a wedding cake form (Woolworth, etc).

When NYC did get a chonky Chicago-style tower - the Equitable Building, designed by a Chicago architect - everyone lost their sh*t and they reformed the zoning code to mandate wedding-cake design.

The 1800s actually. The foreign journalists back then often said, “Wow, those are some chonky office buildings.”

Probably predates the skyscraper itself even. In the 1870s, there’s discussion of the unusual size and extent of the warehouses.
