Salesforce about to make its presence known as well. It will also be prominent from this angle despite it being shorter than many of us would have wanted. It's going to be bulky for a tower of it's height kinda like Chase Tower.

The south tower will always get the majority of the love for obvious reasons, but the north tower turned out to be killer infill. Definitely ranks among the nicer new residential towers

I thought they were East (taller) and West (shorter) towers. Anyway, I just realized that the Diagrams page does not have a diagram of the shorter tower. Hopefully someone will upload one at some point.

The shorter tower also looks like 110 North Wacker.

Same as above, from 110 N Wacker (MVP of Downtown's OHC sites). Different time of day


Hiding amongst giants, from the Adler


From Montrose Harbor


Unfortune glare, but from the Hancock


and a bit of a presence on the skyline from Northwestern's Campus (overlapping Trump Tower, slightly to the right)


I absolutely adore this building. By far my favorite of the cycle.

What a beauty, though I can't look at it without remembering that it's 13' shorter than a supertall for no reason.

That kinda pisses me off. I feel the same every time I see a tower get within like 30 feet or something and I'm just like wtf. Not even gonna stick a small spire on there or anything?

-Caspian Rugs
-Lawson House parking lot
-Post Office
-Parking garage above Shake Shack
I was just tooling around on google street view (because a lot of the downtown area has been updated to August 2021) and it looks like the Rainforest Cafe is closed for good. There's a 'for lease' sign out front. I wonder what that means for the future of this building.

Sorry if this is the wrong thread. I just did a search and this was the last post mentioning it.

They need to redevelop that new mcdonalds. Doesn't matter if they just redeveloped it 3 years ago, absolute short sighted thinking to build a drive thru, suburban mcdonalds in that prime location.

But yeah, there's lots of spots that could be redeveloped in River North. Would love to see more developments like One Chicago, took over a massive parking lot and built this beauty.

^ Not short sighted thinking at all.

The owner of that McDonald's definitely has a long view. He's making money hand over fist, and saving that lot for years as other ones get developed, demand increases, and he can finally sell it some day for mounds and mounds of mucho dinero.

I am so jealous.....

A true covered land play at it's finest. Atleast the site is active, there are plenty of other vacant lots to the West being used as parking lots. Also a covered land play but less activated.
