They did it for Rush hospital and the IIT campus center, both private institutions.

Somehow the CBOT skybridge over the L at Van Buren had to be shut down for terrorism reasons, though.

Or like when the Brown line used to go through the Keebler cookie factory in Old Town. I miss that.

Until recently this was their timeline (which to be fair I thought was kinda ridiculously long)

Ha, I am thinking ChicagoYimby may be following some of our threads here and I'm totally ok with that.

Urbanize Chicago has what looks like an updated rendering from ^that^ same angle, but I can’t post it since I’m on my phone.

It’s very very on trend right now whether or not it’s good design is another question.
Back in the early to mid 2000’s where there was curving facades, especially many towers in the south loop. I had a few friends who had condos in these types of buildings. Not great where you got the unit where a column was 2’ in from the window. Made for awkward placement of living room furniture. No architects are doing that anymore.

Given JDL's typical permit to construction timeline, that means the crane should be arriving approximately today.

Since those are the last phase, I would assume those buildings are placeholders.

Building Up Chicago is reporting that caisson work is already done. JDL wasn't kidding about expediting this project: https://twitter.com/BuildingChi/stat...25542382379008

That's quite a wait for some midsized skyscrapers but it's still a cool project and will expand the skyline a lot.
